A trip through the Elan Valley is a trip through mountains and along winding roads. The main thing to see is the dam and the five lakes . These supply water to Wales and as far as Birmingham.
When the water is low, the remains of a large house and other buildings can be seen beneath the waters.
The film the Dam Busters was filmed here.
The Judge's Lodging is a restored Victorian town house, complete with court and cells. What sets it apart from other restored buildings is that visitors are allowed to touch the exhibits and sit on the furniture. The only things visitors are not allowed to touch are the genuine gas lamps (for obvious safety reasons).
This is a wonderfully atmospheric place to visit, and the resident cat, Arthur, will make you feel at home.
Visit the lake at Llandrindod and see the dragon. The community contributed to this copper statue, and the scales bear the initials of the contributors.
