Nice selection of artisan products and some souvenirs - sometimes a little expensive but you get something unique. Worth a look around especially if it is raining

Lovely place - old llantrisant is a beautiful town. The Model house is fascinating and the town full of history. In easy reach of Cardiff and Talbot Green
