Located historically in the county of West Glamorgan in South Wales, Neath Port Talbot is home to both beautiful coastline and rolling green countryside. Neath Port Talbot became a county in its own right in 1996, when the districts of Neath, Port Talbot and also some of Lliw Valley were combined. While it may seem unassuming, this quiet county is brimming with fantastic things to do with the family.
