This centre is great for parking and sightseeing but not much use for those running or walking Offa’s Dyke. The first day I jogged from Knighton to Welshpool and left before centre was open. On the second day I jogged from Kington to Knighton with...More

The centre is a good place to start or finish exploring the trail locally. Kid-friendly ( plus a playground outside) and reasonable prices for drinks and food. Walk down the river and up through the woods along the Dyke.More

This is not an Offa’s Dyke center, it is a child day-care center with a few photos of the supposed history of the Dyke. I went outside to see the reconstruction of the Dyke, only to find it is actually a skateboard park. There is...More
