Quick family visit - 2 x teenage boys. The small information boards that comprise the exhibition informed us in 10-20 minutes about Offa and his Dyke. Lovely staff. Nice cafe area overlooking the play park. Tea and cakes were really delicious. Some of the locals...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.

My sister and I walked the Offa's Dyke Path recently, finishing in mid-October after 15 days. The Centre's hours are not conducive to actual ODP through-walkers, who would arrive around closing time and leave the next morning before it opens (this was true of every...More

Just visited the centre and can't thank the staff enough. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the Offas Dyke and surrounding area.

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

Hello Thank you for your review of the Offa's Dyke Centre. While we do offer child and adult friendly tea and coffee to attempt to alleviate the loss of grants to run the Centre, the main aspect of the Centre is for information on the...More

It's an impressive looking building, there's lots of info and a dodgy model of someone who's supposed to be Offa. It's not really laid out in an easy to follow chronological order as there's info either side of you when you first turn left and...More

Dear Kevin. Thank you for your very frank and honest review. As you mentioned, the toilets are council owned and operated and do not actually have anything to do with us. We are aware that there have been problems and we have continually reported those...More

Everything about the Offa's Dyke is still here and it is now an excellent community hub for the town. The actual impressive slate built building is aging well, but the parkland around it is now a little scruffy. I recommend the Café for it's quality...More
