Llantrisant Audio Trail


Located in the wonderful town of Llantrisant, once a significant medieval stronghold, this audio trail will give you a fascinating insight into Llantrisant's history.

The trail navigates you around a number of key sites including the statue of the eccentric druid, Dr. William Price, who performed the first legal cremation; to Llantrisant Castle, once 'home' to the unfortunate King Edward II who was imprisoned within the Castle.

The 1.6km walk will start and finish at the Gwaun Ruperra Car Park and takes approximately 1 hour to complete. Couple the trail with a visit to The Model House, a browse around some of the town's shops and a meal in one of the delicious eateries for a great afternoon out. Pair with the Llantrisant Heritage Trail Leaflet, for more detailed information on the key parts of the route.
