Ebbw Vale is a former industrial town located in the valleys of Blaenau Gwent, near the Brecon Beacons National Park. In 1938 the steelworks opened in Ebbw Vale, followed by several coal mines, but by the 1980s the works and mines began to close.
Ebbw Vale is home to the Festival Park Branded Outlet, built upon the former National Green Festival site, with forty stores including the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, The Works and Madhouse menswear.
