*National Botanic Garden of Wales

'There is so much to see here that you'll need a full day, if not more, to see everything ... As a rule, the "must sees" for most of our visitors are [35] The Great Glasshouse, and [18] The Double Walled Garden, whilst nature lovers also want to know about [43] Waun Las NNR.

*Ramblers - Carmarthenshire Area

Details of four Groups within the Carmarthenshire Ramblers' Area.

Carmarthen Urban Walks

Six walks around and about Carmarthen Town Centre: 'Many of the walks given can be lengthened as walking ability improves ... These additional streets only take an extra 5 - 20 minutes to walk and are just as quick and much healthier than jumping in a taxi or on a bus.'
