Llantwit Major & the Glamorgan Heritage Coast

Llantwit Major’s meandering streets exude history. Follow the Blue Plaque Trail to uncover the town’s history as Britain’s oldest seat of Christian learning, and see a fine collection of Celtic carved stones in St.Illtud’s church. Nearby is Glamorgan Heritage Coast - 14 miles of unspoilt coastline, rich in geological features and wildlife. Enjoy Dunraven Bay & Gardens, Ogmore Castle with stepping stones across the river, cliff-top walks, and beaches for rockpooling, surfing and sandcastles.
