Interesting Exhibition

A surprising good exhibition with an interesting theme. I can't recommend this place enough for history and art fans - I can't recommend Carmarthen as a whole enough.

Growing up in Carnarthen my image of this building is if it being boarded up. It's do nice to see it being used and in such a thoughtful way.

This gallery is really worth a visit. It's at the top end of King St opposite St Peters Church, but is OFF King St - which may explain why people haven't found it. Check website for exhibitions & events. Great little shop too - best cards!

Tried to find this place in Carmarthen the sign pointed to Bridge Street where the Guildhall is. So we asked the Tourist Information who directed us to King Street. Never found it not well signed at all.

Ever changing displays of local artworks and crafts make this a venue worth visiting at any time of the year. The staff are polite and helpful but not obtrusive. The little shop also sells items from local crafts people and books too. They also run classes in holiday periods. Highly recommended
