You are here
We don’t like to hand out too much advice here in Mid Wales. We prefer people to do their own thing.That way they’ll always turn up something quirky or surprising. The two-headed lamb of Llanidloes Museum, for instance, or the Lonely Tree of Llanfyllin.
But there are some things you really must do while you’re here, and we just can’t resist telling you about them. We’d just hate for you to miss out. So whatever you do, make sure you
- witness the sumptuous rooms and spectacular Baroque gardens of Powis Castle near Welshpool.
- explore Britain’s greatest natural wonder at Dan-yr-Ogof National Showcaves Centre for Wales, 315 million years in the making.
- follow a hooded boatman into King Arthur’s Labyrinth and the rather less scary Mark Waite, caver extraordinaire, at Corris Mine Explorers near Machynlleth.
- watch up to 600 of our most iconic birds of prey swooping to claim their afternoon snack at the Red Kite Feeding Centre near Rhayader.
- help save the planet – and ride one of the steepest cliff railways in the world – at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth.
And after all that, your time’s your own.
Attractions My Way
“Having just spent a day in Dan-yr-Ogof with six children aged 3-13 years old, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun-filled day out.”
Sara Stowe and Chris Brannick's programme weaves together the exotic sounds of tuned and un-tuned percussion and voice. Their music shows the influence on musical culture of history and ritual, which for centuries have echoed to the sounds of voices and percussion.
The Festival comprises the following three concerts (advance booking for all concerts strongly recommended): www.haymusic.org/
Beth am daith bersonol o amgylch castell preifat? Yna dyma’r peth perffaith i chi yn 2017! Stapleton Castle occupies a commanding position on the hill overlooking Presteigne. It has no public access, due to the perilous state of the ruins. However for 2015 we are pleased to announce that the owners, Trefor & Margaret Griffiths, are offering guided walks to private parties around the site. Tours last a minimum of one hour and include the site of the 12th century castle, the ruins of the 17th century house, the mill site and a relaxing stroll through the gardens.
