The views are beautiful and you can see the sea, coast and the whole area. The library is very unique in character with good disabled facilities.

A rather splendid building, a world class book collection and a lot of exhibitions. They are very helpful when it comes to searching for specific items sush as Ththe maps. The family history section gets pretty busy.

National Collections.
Great Gift Shop with excellent postcards and cards by Welsh artists, including Kyffin Williams.
Pleasant tea-room, quiet and warm.
A relative spent his retirement here and by his death at 101 had authored or contributed to 246 publications...it kept him going!

We went purely to see the recently aquired copy of the Laws of Hywel Dda. A great priviledge. There is no doubt there is loads to see but we were a bit pressed for time. There is a cafe and a gift shop both of which are very good.
