Llandovery is a market town in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the River Tywi and the A40/A483 roads.

The town is served by Llandovery railway station, where there is a park and ride to Llanelli and Shrewsbury via the Heart of Wales Line. Llandovery - a corruption of ' Llanymddyfri', meaning 'Llan ymlith y dyfroedd' or in English 'Church enclosure amidst the waters' - owes its name, to its position between the River Tywi and the Afon Brân just upstream of their confluence. A smaller watercourse the Bawddwr, runs through and under the town. Llandovery is twinned with Pluguffan in Brittany, France.
