Tregaron is a busy market town in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. Tregaron offers various types of activities including walking, bird watching, fishing, cycling and sightseeing.
Red Kite Centre
Tregaron Town Centre

In the main square you will find the The Talbot Hotel - where you can sample local hopitality, the Welsh Gold Centre and the Cambrian Arts gallery that offers regular exhibitions of quality works. The annual Tregaron trotting Races held in August draws enthusiasts from all over the UK.

Tregaron is located south of one of Europe's largest growing peat bogs - Cors Goch Glan Teifi (Cors Caron) - an important National Nature Reserve. Cors Caron is fed by the river Teifi, famous with anglers, which flows down from its source in the high hills above Pontrhydfendigaid. The elusive Brown Trout, Salmon and Sewin are to be found in the Teifi river. There are a number of Coarse fisheries in the county offering facilities for anglers of all abilities.

A number of establishments have signed up to the Ceredigion 'Anglers Welcome' Initiative, a scheme aimed at easing identification of places to stay that cater for an angler's needs.
Rhiannon Welsh Gold Centre

But if you prefer the finer things in life then why not visit the Rhiannon Welsh Gold Centre for locally crafted crafts and jewellery.

There is a choice between a round trip proceeding towards Abergwesyn and Llanwrtyd Wells, then via Rhayader, the Elan Valley and Cwmystwyth, or proceeding in a southerly direction towards Llandovery via the Brianne Dam. This latter route also affords the possibility of a round trip back to Tregaron via Lampeter.

Various varieties of birds can be spotted at Tregaron but the most renowned and much publicised is the Red Kite. The red kite centre offers an opportunity to learn more about the spectacular wildlife of the area.
