A bit about the place...
Tywyn is a traditional seaside town on the west coast of Mid Wales. It has many interesting shops in a busy high street catering for everyone’s needs. There are four miles of golden sandy beach and two miles of easily accessible promenade, both of which are key attractions. Tywyn is surrounded by the Snowdonia National Park, whose breathtaking mountain ranges melt away to the town and then to the sea.
Tywyn is the home of the Talyllyn Railway, the world’s first preserved steam railway, where steam hauled passenger trains run extensively during the year.
Tywyn has a vibrant community spirit which was shown throughout last year’s events, namely two Music Festivals (one in the town and one on the promenade), a Carnival, Halloween Ghost Walk and Bonfire Night Fireworks.
There is also live music at Tywyn Magic Lantern Cinema and the recently refurbished Neuadd Pendre Social Centre throughout the year, and also sometimes at the town’s friendly pubs and clubs.
Tywyn is a wheelchair-friendly resort which also makes it an ideal place for the whole family. It is also an excellent base from which to visit the beautiful surrounding area.
Tywyn possesses many facilities usually associated with larger towns. These include a community hospital, health centre, dental practice, veterinary practices, cinema, leisure centre (including a swimming pool), outdoor leisure park and children’s play park.
There is a street market every Easter Monday, and a weekly Monday market from the beginning of May until the end of September.
Best of all, car parking is free in the majority of the town and also on the promenade.
If you love to see aircraft flying at close range, the Tal-y-llyn Pass (Bwlch yr Oer) has become a hotspot for photographing military planes in flight.
