"...the streets are lined with charming 18th and early 19th century cottages."

The main square is called the Bullring, a partly cobbled area opening off the main road through the town. Until 1827 the Bullring was used for bull baiting, and is dominated by the Model House. Originally the Workhouse where inmates were expected to lead a "model life" – the Model House now houses a centre for the production, exhibition and sale of crafts of all kinds, and crafts can also be seen nearby at the Hill Top Studio and at the Butchers Arms Gallery.

Stroll up beyond the Bull Ring and the side streets are lined with charming 18th and early 19th century cottages, with a church and the remains of a castle. The Church, originally founded in the eleventh century, is dedicated to Saints Gwynno, Illtyd and Tyfodwg who are commemorated in the town's name, Llantrisant means 'Church of Three Saints'.

From every street corner you'll discover new views - whether it's over Talbot Green which sits at the foot of Llantrisant's abrupt escarpment, the rolling country of the Vale of Glamorgan or north to the Rhondda.  Talking about Talbot Green, you really are spoilt for choice with a large modern shopping centre showcasing major companies like Marks & Spencer and the famous Leekes of Llantrisant surrounded by acres of car parks - the complete antithesis of the ancient town above. On a clear day, even Cardiff and the Bristol Channel and beyond come in to view - truly magnificent.
