Hotels in Pontypridd
Once a busy steel, coal and iron centre, Pontypridd is often locally referred to as 'Ponty' and is a great base for exploring South Wales' fascinating industrial heritage attractions. The settlement began to develop after the opening of the Brown Lenox chainworks in the 1810s, and by the late 19th century, this area of Wales was dubbed the 'Wild West' because of its enormous coalfields.
In a converted Victorian chapel, the Pontypridd Museum examines the history of the town through a series of fascinating exhibitions, which, in the past, have included a Welsh black and white photography collection and a summer exhibition by the Pontypridd and District Art Society.
The Old Bridge
Probably the defining landmark of Pontypridd, the Old Bridge is more than 250 years old and is now protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. When it was built, it was Britain's longest single-span bridge, and it is now adjacent to Victoria Bridge, built in the 1850s.
The Blaenavon Industrial Landscape UNESCO World Heritage Site
This is a landscape that pioneered what was probably the most significant process in record history, the development of novel industrial methods and technology that transformed economies and societies all over the globe. See the former homes of coal miners, visit the quarries and coal mines that provided a livelihood for thousands of local families, and discover the Blaenavon Ironworks, where it all began.
Surrounded by an unusually large water defence, Caerphilly Castle is one of Britain's finest medieval landmarks and was built in the 13th century. The building was the home of the Marquesses of Bute by the late 18th century, although it was sold after the Second World War and subsequently converted into the popular tourist attraction it is today.
