The roots of the name Kidwelly can be traced back to the ancient Welsh name `Cetgueli', which was in use as early as the 9th century. Nowadays, the town of Kidwelly is home to around 3,000 people, who welcome a large number of tourists every year.

Brick and tin production boomed in Kidwelly during the industrial revolution but life is somewhat slower-paced in the town today. The story of life in Kidwelly in the 19th century can be found at the town's Industrial Museum.

Walking around the town, visitors can take in historic landmarks at every turn, from a 14th century bridge and gate, to the Norman Parish Church, to the mighty Kidwelly Castle that dominates the town.

The Castle received a number of alterations as Norman military technology and strategy developed and what remains is a great example of Norman architecture. The castle was used by the Normans as a stronghold in south west Wales from which to secure conquests in that corner of the country.

Summer is a great time to take a holiday in Kidwelly, with the carnival arriving around the middle of the month and the Carmarthenshire countryside in full bloom.
