Town or country? Sea or mountain? New site for Visit Mid Wales showcases the region’s many attractions

Categories: Latest News

From a bridge built by the Devil himself to a landscape punctuated by mountains and dotted with Iron Age forts, Mid Wales brims with sights and now — thanks to the unveiling of its new Simpleview Tourism Pro Site — Visit Mid Wales can make the most of its legendary attractions.

The website ( highlights all the region has to offer. While it’s true that Mid Wales is flanked by two well-known national parks — Brecon Beacons to the south and Snowdonia to the north, respectively — this newly launched site puts the many attractions of Mid Wales front and centre. Whether visitors want to spend time dipping their toes in the azure waters of the Ceredigion Coast, exploring the hills and valleys of North Powys or taking in the waterfalls dotted along the famous Vale of Rheidol Railway, nature is never far away in this corner of Wales. 

It may be thinly populated, but the towns of Mid Wales are packed with local markets and independent shops, cafes and accommodation. Agriculture has always been at the heart of the area’s economy and nowhere is this more evident than in Welshpool, famous for hosting Europe’s largest sheep market. Stepping away from the bustle, Welshpool is also graced with stately Georgian architecture and the dramatic Powis Castle. For those looking to get more of that Mid Wales market town feel, Machynlleth, Aberystwyth, Builth Wells, and Dolgellau — to name just a few — each offer their own unique attractions, history and charms.

Be it town or country, sea or mountain, this part of the Welsh nation has so much to offer and now — thanks to the region’s new website — visitors can make the most of their Mid Wales experience.
