Neath City Guide

If you’re passionate about the great outdoors, then Neath is the place for you. Nestling conveniently between Glamorgan’s Heritage Coast and the Brecon Beacons National Park, Neath is something of a mecca for mountain bikers and hikers alike, uniquely positioned as it is to provide the very best Welsh, and indeed British, coastline, mountain and green valley landscapes. What’s more, with Swansea never more than just a short road-trip away you will also have quick and easy access to the city fast becoming known as “the Brighton of Wales”, where you can let your hair down once you’ve burnt some calories on the mountain trails!

Outdoor Activities in Neath

With its spectacular rural location, Neath has an understandable focus on offering a wealth of outdoor activities to its visitors.

If your passion is simply for walks then Neath’s country parks, waterfalls, and canal towpaths will take your breath away.

If your appetite hankers for a little more velocity in your adventuring, then Neath provides everything from relaxing forest biking trails to world-class downhill descents that have a reputation for heart-stopping intensity. Hikers can also get their kicks from tackling the challenging uphill trails.

Watersports in Neath

It’s about more than just mountains and valleys in b>Neath though. With easy access to a wealth of lakes and reservoirs, coupled with a selection of sailing clubs offering tuition to every level, Neath provides the perfect opportunity for everyone, from novice to expert, to get out on the water.

With huge stretches of epic coastline within quick and easy reach, those of you looking to wax your boards and catch some surf will be able to ride the swells at Aberavon Beach where you will also find surfing lessons available to ensure everyone can have a go!

Heritage and History in Neath

Neath’s history dates back to Roman times and there are a number of sites of historical interest that chart a rich and varied history from those early days, through the middle ages and the industrial revolution to the present day.

The Dulais Valley Heritage Trail will take you, quite literally, on a walk through history, and you can discover the tranquil splendour of the nearly 1000 year old ruins of Neath Abbey. At Aberdulais Falls you can see the largest electricity-generating waterwheel in the UK, and it’s quite something to behold.

Enjoy Neath!

A historical market town with plenty of shops, cafes and pubs in which to unwind, Neath is a charming gem of a town, sited at the midpoint of the five valleys that surround it.

As well as the church whose choir gave the world Katherine Jenkins,the picturesque town centre also has at its heart Victoria Gardens, which offers two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens with a 19th Century bandstand at their heart - you would indeed be hard pressed to find a more archetypal example of Welsh rural charm than the one you will discover in Neath.
