If you are travelling along this line for the first time, you will be impressed. Seasoned travellers will need no reminding of the rugged beauty, tranquil villages and picturesque Victorian spa towns that are dotted along one of the most scenic lines in the United Kingdom.

For 121 miles between Swansea and Shrewsbury, a feast of panoramic views includes the beautiful Loughor estuary near Llanelli, the meandering river Tywi between Llandeilo and Llandovery, red kite in the skies above the Eppynt hills near Llanwrtyd Wells, the Radnor Forest between Llandrindod Wells and Knighton, and the remote borderlands of the English Marches.

The impressive viaducts at Cynghordy and Knucklas are 2 of the 7 bridges crossed on a journey that also includes 6 tunnels.
