Booking a Top Car Hire in Llanelli is Now Made Easy
Llanelli is the largest town in the county of Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. It nestles at the mouth of the river Loughor, which flows down from its source in an underground lake in the Black Mountain. The town name comes from Saint Elli, who was born to a queen who was thought to be past the age of having children, and she dedicated Elli to the service of God.
Llanelli has made its name in the world of rugby, with two Union clubs, Llanelli RFC and the Scarlets, and a League club, the West Wales Sharks. In 1999, several Rugby World Cup games were held at nearby Stradey Park, including the Argentina v Western Samoa game.
There is a Millennium Coastal Path that passes close to Llanelli, with chances to explore the Gower Peninsula, as well as nearby Pembrey and Loughor. Indeed Llanelli is now being developed as a leisure and tourism destination in its own right, with many ongoing developments such as the new Llanelli Scarlets rugby stadium, the Old Castle Works leisure village and the magnificent new National Hunt racecourse at Ffos Las near Trimsaran.
