We are situated on the Offa's Dyke Path, almost half way between Prestatyn and Chepstow where the path begins and ends. We have an Exhibition with information about King Offa and the Dyke. We also have a coffee shop and gift shop. There is plenty of parking and we are a short walk from the centre of beautiful Knighton town. We are open daily from April to October 10am to 5pm and in the Winter season from November to March we are open daily except Tuesday, from 10am to 4pm. We look forward to welcoming you to our visitor centre soon!
