06/08/2014: It's Victorian Week again! August 18th to 25th

Every year, the Victorian Week festival in Llandrindod Wells draws people from all over the world. In the late 19th century, Llandrindod Wells was the place to go for holidays and to take the waters from the town's famous spa. At its peak, the tourist trade here brought in some 900,000 people each year.

The town still has a great affinity with the Victorian age, with buildings from that time being preserved to show off the architecture and elaborate wrought iron work. More than just buildings though, for this week the town's spirit goes Victorian too.

If you enjoy dressing up, you can join in the parades, tea dances and music hall evenings in costume of the era, or come as you are if you prefer. The male voice choir concert is always a big attraction, with rousing choruses and stirring traditional Welsh melodies.

There is a traditional steam driven funfair on the green, lots of vintage vehicles and bicycles to be marvelled at, and the whole thing is topped off by a torchlight parade and fireworks by the lake on the last night.

Staying at Greylands Guesthouse is the perfect location for joining in the festival, being just a short walk from the town centre and the rock park.
