The charming town of Cardigan sits on the banks of the River Teifi in the county of Ceredigion in West Wales. Full of heritage and character, Cardigan features castle ruins and narrow streets lined with Victorian shop fronts as well as the range of services expected of a modern town. Cardigan's thoughtfully preserved main street offers visitors an interesting mix of traditional and contemporary shops to browse as well as an inviting selection of cafés and pubs to unwind in.
Highlights of the town's rich heritage include the ruins of Cardigan castle which stand on the banks of the River Teifi. Originally built as a timber frame castle in 1100, the castle was later transformed into stone around 1136. It was here at Cardigan castle that the first national Eisteddfod of Wales was held in 1176. The remains of the castle's exterior wall, south-east tower, and pill box can be clearly seen from the riverside on Bridge Street and the Strand.
Located in the centre of the town is Cardigan's indoor market, housed in the impressive gothic style Guildhall. Here visitors can indulge in a range of locally produced breads, meats, and dairy products as well and fresh fruit and vegetables. In the lower market a variety stalls offer home wares, clothing, pet supplies, flowers, and arts and crafts. Also located in the Guildhall is the Corn Exchange Gallery which hosts a calendar of arts and crafts exhibitions for visitors to enjoy.
