Events - Merthyr Tydfil & The Heads of The Valleys

The beautiful and dramatic countryside around Merthyr Tydfil is the perfect setting for a wide range of activities and attractions. Days out for all the family can be spent in the local forests and hills at sites such as Dolygaer Outdoor Education Centre, the Taff Fechan Nature Reserve, Gethin Woodland Park, Garwnant Forest or at one of the many attractions.

Walkers will find an endless choice of both challenging and more gentle routes including the long distance Taff Trail, which links the capital city of Cardiff to the historic market town of Brecon.

The Trail passes through some of the Taff valley's most spectacular countryside and incorporates many interesting features within the local area such as the Penydarren Tramroad which carried Trevithick's famous engine down to Abercynon in 1804 - a world first.

Within Merthyr Tydfil itself, there are a variety of local heritage trails which highlight the Town's historic sites and places of interest. These range in length and terrain to suit all needs and abilities.

A wide range of sporting facilities are also available within the County Borough including excellent fishing, pony trekking, sailing, windsurfing, cycling and golf as well as indoor sports at the many leisure/community centres.
