Builth Wells is a friendly market town some 8 miles from Llangammarch with a primary school and secondary school, leisure centre and a wide selection of shops, cafes and public houses. The Wyeside Arts Centre is a busy venue for live and visual arts and cinema and there is an 18 hole parkland golf course.
