To complete your journey to the Elan Valley you can use the Taxi Link service operated by S.P. Cars (Simon Price) – please call 01597 810666 providing 2 hours advance notice. This service is available to wheelchair users and concessions are available.

If you are driving, from Rhayader follow the B4518 west out of the town. The left turn for the Visitor Centre is signposted after three miles.

For Sat Nav users please note the postcode LD6 5HP takes you almost to the Visitor Centre ... but after you turn left from the B4518 ignore any advice to cross the iron bridge over the river; instead drive over the cattle grid and the Visitor Centre is ahead of you. If travelling North to Rhayader on the A470 your Sat Nav will try to take you through Llanwrthwl Village; this is not suitable for coaches or large vehicles as it takes you through narrow country lanes. For a more direct route head for Rhayader and turn left at the Memorial Clock.
