Rhayader has a very proud Welsh heritage with livestock and agriculture remaining the main source of income for the town. With livestock fairs weekly it’s no secret that Rhayader is still in touch with its rich history. Some of the town buildings are still in medieval condition and many of the streets still retain their ancient cobbled and paved pathways. Being at the centre of Wales, Rhayader is used to its streets being pounded by travellers’ feet and will always welcome tourists to the area.
Experience some of that historic culture in the Willow Theatre, a scaled down version of the Globe theatre in London. Frequently, there are shows and workshops held there for all ages. Being surrounded by outstanding countryside there are plenty of walks and cycles to be had – follow the Wye Valley and try part of the 136 mile trek for yourself. Visit one of the many wildlife conservation parks and encounter some of the best wildlife Wales has to offer as Rhayader is a complete hive for life, nature and interest.
