Whitland is a small town situated approximately 15 miles from Carmarthen. The town borders the river Taf, and the county of Pembrokeshire. The Taf can be fished with a permit, available locally.
Whitland is fortunate to have its own railway station right in the town, with direct links to London, and the north, as well as local services. Whitland has 2 thriving schools, Post Office, bank, shops, businesses, 3 pubs, cafe, and a restaurant just outside the town.
Whitland also has the well known Hywel Dda interpretive centre, and just outside the town is Whitland Abbey, which can be seen by using the many footpaths that surround Whitland, especially the famous Landsker line.
Whitland town hall is a registered charity, number 504650. It is conveniently situated near to a railway station, close to the A40 and with ample parking facilities. It is suitable for conferences and meetings as it has a large main hall and other smaller spaces for hire per hour. It has IT, internet, printing and copying facilities for conferences, meetings and video conferencing.
The Hall was built in 1904. The ground floor was at some point let to a co-operative society and then a butcher, and in 1950 the top floor became a cinema, The Coloseum, and the rest of the building a staff and social club. In 1973 the Hall was passed to the people of Whitland, and in 1992 extension and extensive renovation was carried out, leading to the Hall that is seen today.
The hall is ideal for holding Receptions, Parties, Dinners, Conferences and Exhibitions.
