Getting there & around
The railway lines in Mid-Wales all run daily services, albeit often with reduced frequency on Sundays. The Cambrian Line (www.thecambrianline.co.uk) runs from Shrewsbury (England) to Aberystwyth via Machynlleth; the Heart of Wales Line (www.heart-of-wales.co.uk) runs from Shrewsbury to Swansea via Llandrindod Wells and Knighton.
Bus transport is patchy, especially in Powys, and services are rare on Sunday. Mid-Wales’ major companies are Arriva Cymru (www.arrivabus.co.uk) based in Aberystwyth, and Roy Brown’s Coaches (www.roybrownscoaches.co.uk) in Builth Wells.
