Welcome to The Pontardawe Town Council website

Pontardawe is a rural town 7 miles north of Swansea and 4 Miles off the M4 corridor, with good link roads. It is an ideal base for people wishing to visit Neath, Swansea, Gower, Llanelli or Carmarthen and the Brecon Beacons National Park for pleasure or for work. None of these areas is more than 45 minutes away.

Rail Station - Swansea or Neath change to local bus at the terminus in both Swansea and Neath. There are frequent valley links. However, there is a wealth of Industrial History that can be explored in the area together with ancient woodlands and serene canal walks.

If your interests are more sport orientated there is an excellently equipped leisure centre and swimming pool where you can find a sport to satisfy all tastes. If golf is your game there is an 18 hole golf course on your door step.
