Attraction

The National Coracle Centre

A Museum and Workshop of Coracles from around the world set in the grounds of a 17th Century Flour Mill beside the beautiful Cenarth falls famed for its Salmon Leaps and 200 year old Bridge over the Teifi River.The Museum, apart from its fine collection of coracles covers the history of coracles and the techniques and tools for building them. Also a section on the implements and methods used for the equally ancient art of poaching.The National Coracle Museum houses an international collection of coracles from as far afield as Vietnam, North America, India, Tibet and Iraq to complement the collection of coracles from around our home islands.The museum also incorporates a work-shop to show the ancient craft of coracle making. Young children can also sit in a coracle and watch a video of how they are made.

For organised parties a guided tour of both the museum and the 17th Century Flour Mill is available.

From the Mill viewing areas and pathways provide wonderful views of the Salmon Leap and the 200 year old bridge.

Author's Review

The National Coracle Centre is one of those attractions that I find so hard to find the words to say how great it is. With Coracles from all over the world on display, I was blown away to learn the history behind not only the Coracle but behind the people that would of manned these strange vessels not only many years ago but still today. This attraction is most unique in the way that it is positioned right smack bang in the middle of two counties not just one! Whether you're visiting Ceredigion or Pembrokeshire it doesn't matter as the only thing separating the two counties and this attraction is a bridge, which ironically crosses the very river that is home to many coracles even today. You will love it here and the kids can even get taught how to sail one.
