The annual World Bog Snorkelling Championships are held in Llanwrtyd Wells, Mid Wales - an event that Lonely Planet described as one of the top 50 "must do" things from around the world.

Hundreds of participants from around the world, and plenty of spectators, are expected once again.The event takes place at Waen Rhydd bog on the outskirts of the town, getting underway at about 10am. The site is signposted from the town for those who don't mind about a mile walk, and there is also a shuttle bus running from the town square to the bog and back throughout the day, beginning as soon as we can manage after 9am.

There are food and drink stalls, crafts, a bouncy castle, live music and a real ale and cider bar on the site, so it's a great day out even if you don't fancy taking the plunge. For further information visit:


Llanwrtyd Wells is located on the main A483 road between Builth Wells and Llandovery. There is on-street parking available in the town.

The train station is approximately a 10 minute walk from the town along a paved walkway.
