Visit Montgomeryshire


Visit Montgomery, the old county town of Montgomeryshire which is an area steeped in history and dates to Roman occupation. Montgomery Castle is popular amongst tourists, which sits above a pretty Georgian town with all stunning surrounding views across the Welsh border.  Montgomery is known for its welcoming pubs and restaurants which serve top quality food and local beers.

The heart of Mid Wales is Powys; the biggest county in Wales and the longest in Britain. Running from north to south beside the border, it is sometimes known as the backbone of Wales. Despite only being created in the 1970s to include old Montgomeryshire, Brecknockshire, Radnorshire and a small part of Denbighshire, it is one of the most important areas of Wales. A lightly scattered population means that the Powys countryside is largely unspoilt. From the tip of southern Snowdonia, the Cambrian Mountains, the Wales Marches and the Brecon Beacons, there is an abundance of nature and countryside to see and explore.

The Brecon Beacons is a great location to take part in water sports such as sailing, dragon boating, raft building and kayaking to name a few. It’s not all about the water; you can also take part in activities on dry land just a mile away. The Brecon Beacons National Park is in a part of Wales that is well-known for its exceptional natural beauty and historical character. The beautiful hills of the Brecon Beacons provide a huge variety of walks.

As you enjoy all these wonderful activities why not choose to stay in a pub when you visit Montgomeryshire. Recharge your batteries after a long day out exploring the beautiful countryside, and sit by a roaring log fire with a local ale and delicious homemade pub food.
