Historic walks

Step back in time while stepping through our towns, countryside and landmarks.

Rhondda Cynon Taf has rich history and heritage. Industrial sites from which we helped power the world and inspired the great minds of Sir Isambard Kingdom Brunel and George Stephenson. Awe-inspiring remnants of the search for "black gold" and cultural icons including Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau composers Evan and James James, actor Glyn Houston and, of course, Sir Tom Jones. Discover myths, legends, castles, fearless warriors and more with our Heritage Walks, many of which you can follow either with a downloadable map or fun audio directions.
