About Neath Port Talbot

Our county borough is a beautiful place. It is also a dramatic place; a place of extremes. From the golden sands of Aberavon Beach, to valleys, woodland and waterfalls, Neath Port Talbot is blessed with such diversity of natural assets.

When it comes to culture and heritage, the region has much to boast about too. It is a place which inspires creativity, with a host of talent springing out of the local area. It is home to a raft of drama, music and dance groups. And in terms of producing famous actors and entertainers, this gifted corner of Wales punches well above its weight on the world stage.

That success in the arts is of course mirrored in our industrial heritage. From coal and tin in times gone by to steel and technology today, Neath Port Talbot is proud of what it produces and how it’s respected globally.

Sport is also a strong feature of community life. There is a wide array of active local sports clubs across the area and no end of opportunities to combine an active lifestyle with a love of our great outdoors. We are also proud of our Welsh language and culture and are committed to preserving and pro-actively promoting both.
