<templatestyles src="Pagebanner/styles.css"/> {{safesubst:#invoke:CountryData|countryData2HTML|debug=|}}Template:PAGEBANNER:LlanelliLB04 (cropped).JPG Llanelli is a large town in Carmarthenshire that sums up everything that South Wales was historically about. Rugby Union, religious nonconformity, proud preservation of the Welsh language, metal-bashing of steel for car production and tinplate for tin cans - and brownfield desolation when this industry declined. Llanelli remains industrial, and is a commuter town for Swansea 10 miles east; its population in 2011 was 49,591. It hasn't developed many tourist attractions of its own but is a base for visiting scenic areas such as the Millennium Coastal Path and Pembrey Country Park.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

Pembrey Airport is 7 km from the town - private flights only.

By car[edit]

The town is linked to the M4 motorway via the A4138.

By bus[edit]

Llanelli is served by regular local bus services between Swansea and Carmarthen and National Express Coaches between many major UK destinations.

By train[edit]

Llanelli railway station is on Great Western Crescent south of the town centre. The station is connected to Fishguard and Swansea along the West Wales Line. The station is also on the Heart of Wales Line, which links the town to Mid Wales and Shrewsbury.

By bicycle[edit]

Llanelli is connected to the National Cycle Network from the north on NCR 43, and along the coast from the east and west on NCR 4. These routes are directly connected to the town centre via a cycle path.
