Llanelli is a large town in Carmarthenshire that sums up everything that South Wales was historically about. Rugby Union, religious nonconformity, proud preservation of the Welsh language, metal-bashing of steel for car production and tinplate for tin cans - and brownfield desolation when this industry declined. Llanelli remains industrial, and is a commuter town for Swansea 10 miles east; its population in 2011 was 49,591. It hasn't developed many tourist attractions of its own but is a base for visiting scenic areas such as the Millennium Coastal Path and Pembrey Country Park.
Pembrey Airport is 7 km from the town - private flights only.
