Aberdare is a large town in the Cynon Valley area of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales. The number of inhabitants was 31,705 at the 2001 census, which makes Aberdare the 13th largest town in Wales. It is 20 miles north-west of Cardiff and 22 miles north-east of Swansea.
Aberdare evolved into an active industrial town in the 19th century, when it became a centre of iron and tin production. Later there were many coal mines in the town which grew its population as people came there to work. Now that the coal mines have closed, the landscape has remnants of its past but nature has renewed it to its former beauty.
The town dates back far into history, with ancient burial sites and standing stones still visible today. There is a lot of Victorian architecture still standing in Aberdare that links with its interesting past.
Aberdare is a busy town with copious amounts of shops and restaurants. It is just a 40 minute train ride from Cardiff, so it's easy to appreciate the countryside around Aberdale and then hop on the train to take advantage of what the city has on offer.
