Knighton, Powys, is a small market town sitting astride the border between Wales and England. A historic town set in the lush rolling country of the Marches.
The Welsh name for the town is “Tref-y-Clawdd”, the town on the Dyke. Knighton is the only town to lie on the line of Offa’s Dyke, and is the home to the Offa’s Dyke Centre and the mid point of the Offa’s Dyke National Trail.
Little Offa will be showing you all around the town and will be taking trips out of Knighton to the surrounding areas. He will show you just how much fun there is to be had here. You can follow his travels on his Facebook page .
Knighton is an excellent location for a day trip, a short break or holiday with a wide range of places to stay. These include an award winning hotel, many cosy bed and breakfasts and farmhouse accommodation, camping, and many self catering cottages. Knighton is the perfect place for both those who want an energetic holiday or those who just want to relax. There are many places providing good food and drink.
Many people return to Knighton and surrounding areas year after year.
The Heart of Wales Railway Line Trail, which will connect all the stations along the line, opened between Knighton and Craven Arms in July 2017 and will open from Knighton to Llangunllo soon. Use the train to travel out then walk back, just as far as you choose.
It’s Wales’ “Year of the Sea”. Well, Knighton is just about as far from the sea as anywhere in Wales…
