Neath is a town in Glamorgan in South Wales.
Originally a small market town, Neath grew into a large manufacturing base for iron, steel and tinplate during the industrial revolution. The town currently has a population of around 50,000, and although it lacks any specific tourist attractions, its location near the stunning Swansea and Neath Valleys make it a convenient, if not overly inspiring, base for touring these places.
