Rhondda Cynon Taf - Adventures on your doorstep

Explore a hidden treasure of Wales. Step into Rhondda Cynon Taf and be surprised by what you discover.

While some many not have heard our name, millions across the world have heard our voices, loved our landscapes and learned our history.

Home of Sir Tom Jones and the place where the iconic Welsh National Anthem was composed, Rhondda Cynon Taf is still home to a thriving arts and culture scene - from Grammy Award-winning songwriters to Male Voice Choirs.

The legacy of coal mining can be seen all around, from dramatic tips which have been reclaimed by Mother Nature and are now beauty spots to the rainbow-coloured houses that cling to the mountainsides like trinkets, welcoming communities.

There is so much more to Rhondda Cynon Taf than you think.

Follow in the footsteps of the miners who once worked at the Lewis Merthyr Colliery, in the heart of the Rhondda Valley - the ‘Home of Coal.’
