As the largest part of the nation of Wales the county of Powys carries some considerable clout in the United Kingdom. The county of Powys also carries some cities with some bizarre sounding names but this is the nature of the Welsh language. At any rate, Wales is known to have some of the most gorgeous landscapes this side of Scotland and a large amount of these natural wonders are found within Powys. This allows any city in Powys to lay claim to such fantastic sites as the famed Glyndwr's Way or the incredibly impressive Offa's Dyke Path. In addition, the many burgs contained within Powys share the glory and splendor of such fantastic pieces of scenery as The Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons, and Radnor Forest. Among the towns in Powys, Builth Wells is easily one of the more beautiful. It sits amid both the River Wye and the River Irfon in the higher part of the Wye Valley.

Wales has been inhabited for an incredibly long time and Builth Wells serves as a great example of an early Welsh inhabitation. During the rise of the Kingdom of Powys, after the fall of the Roman Empire, Builth Wells quickly arose as an enjoyable and pleasant market town. In later years the prevalence of natural springs would cement the city's reputation as a fantastic spa town and further the income of the burgeoning powerhouse. It wasn't until Wales was under the control of the English, however, that Builth Wells began to truly come into its own with its very own castle, built by the legendary Edward I in the early 1200s. It was during this time that the Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr began to lead his bold but ultimately unsuccessful campaign against England. Glyndwr's Way marks the path Glyndwr took during his venture to recapture his homeland and Builth Wells was one of the places that he stormed with his troops. Glyndwr and his men stormed the castle and caused so much damage to it that it wasn't fully refurbished until the 1400s.

Builth Wells may have a sparse population that barely tops out around twenty five hundred but the fact of the matter is that this is a town that is fully steeped in the present. The Builth Road Railway Station is an efficient and dependable line that makes up part of the admirable and well constructed Heart of Wales Line and the Builth Wells High School is the ninth best secondary school in all of Wales as well as the second best secondary school in the county of Powys. The Builth Wells Bulls are one of the most beloved rugby teams in the country and all manner of sporting arenas and grounds are available in the city, befitting a Welsh town. These amenities don't shroud the rich and long history of Builth Wells, though, and this is truly a refreshing thing to see. Builth Wells may be a modern city in every sense of the word but it pays due homage to the citizens who lived hear in years gone by.
