Tywyn (formerly Towyn) is a town lying on Cardigan Bay on the west coast of north Wales a mile away from the mouth of the Afon Dysynni and known as a seaside resort. Attractions in the town include its beach including it's extensive promanard. Tywyn is also surrounded by the local Tarren hills and also home to the Talyllyn Lake.

Other attractions include the Norman Church of St Cadfan housing St Cadfan's Stone dating from about 650 and inscribed with the oldest known written Welsh, and the narrow gauge Talyllyn Railway. This was the first railway in the world to be taken over and run by a volunteer-led preservation society, which took over the line in 1950 after the death of the previous owner, Sir Henry Haydn Jones.

The main schools in Tywyn are the primary, "Ysgol Penybryn Tywyn" and the secondary, "Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn".

In History Tywyn was a major training ground for the landings in the second world war had a strategic war base.

The Marconi Company built a Long Wave receiving station in Tywyn in 1914, this worked in association with a high-powered transmitting station near Waunfawr.
