Llanwrtyd Wells is one of the smallest towns in Mid-Wales, sitting astride the River Irfon. With a population of approximately 850, it famously claims to be the smallest town in Britain. The town is located on the A483 between Llandovery and Builth Wells near the Tywi and Irfon valleys. Llanwrtyd Wells grew as a spa town around the Ffynnon Ddrewllyd, which still exists, following the discovery of waters with healing properties in 1732. The town is the site of both the World Bog Snorkelling Championships and the annual Man versus Horse Marathon, as well as other annual events. The market town of Builth Wells, located at the heart of Powys, is just 13 miles away in what is arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. Builth Wells lies within the Historic Boundaries of Brecknockshire, situated on the banks of the River Wye and the River Irfon – The upper section of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells is famously known for hosting the annual Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year.
