Llangammarch Wells or simply Llangammarch (Welsh: Llangamarch) is a village in the parish of Llangammarch in Powys, within the historic boundaries of Brecknockshire, mid Wales, lying on the River Irfon.

It is the smallest of the four spa villages of mid-Wales, alongside Llandrindod Wells, Builth Wells and Llanwrtyd Wells. The spa was focused on a barium well, which is now closed, but the village is still popular with anglers.

Church of St Cadmarch

The old village is centred on the parish church of St Cadmarch, which is a grade II* listed building. [1]

Llangammarch station is on the Heart of Wales Line with trains provided by Arriva Trains Wales. It lies on Route 43 of the National Cycle Network.

Llangammarch Wells Golf Club (now defunct) was founded in 1904. The club and course disappeared in the 1950s.[2]
