Llan-dafel sits between Ebbw Vale and Aberbeeg in Blaenau Gwent, South Wales. In the latter town, the Ebbw Fach and Ebbw Fawr rivers join to form the Ebbw river. This then runs onwards through Abercarn and Risca before joining the river Usk and flowing into the sea at the Severn estuary.
For shopping opportunities, Ebbw Vale is home to the Festival Park Branded Outlet. Built upon the former National Green Festival site, the outlet has over forty stores including the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, The Works and Madhouse menswear.
