The Carmarthen Journal is a newspaper founded in 1810 in Wales and now based in Carmarthen, the county town of Carmarthenshire, Wales. The building housing the Carmarthen Journal asserts that the Carmarthen Journal is the oldest newspaper in Wales.

In 2012, Local World acquired ownership of Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[1]

Welsh Newspapers Online has digitised 1,340 issues of the Carmarthen Journal (1810-1919) from the newspaper holdings of the National Library of Wales.[2]
