The B4268, a major lorry route, connecting the A48 with Llandow and Llantwit Major, runs through Llysworney.

Notable landmarks[edit]

The Carne Arms[edit]

Dating back over 400 years the Carne Arms is an old inn with open fires. Thought to have originally been part of the local Rectory its name is ancient and is derived from the Cornish "Carn" which means "rock". However, in this instance, the inn probably received its name in memory of a wealthy and influential local family rather than from the feature of the local landscape.
