The Offa's Dyke Centre is the home of the Offa's Dyke Association. A membership-based charity, founded in 1969, we are the friends' group for both Offa's Dyke the 8th century border earthwork monument and Offa's Dyke Path National Trails.

The Centre is your first port of call to find out about King Offa, his Dyke, the National Trail and the wider Welsh border region. Browse our interpretive displays, visit our book and souvenir shop and then enjoy a tea or coffee with one of our famous cakes.

Our on-line shop stocks the full range of maps and guidebooks to Offa's Dyke Path as well as guidebooks to shorter day walks along the Dyke and border. Don't set out without your walkers' Passport (£5) sales of which support our conservation fund for conservation projects the length of the Dyke and Trail. Visit

The Centre is also equipped for conferences, there are both large and small meeting rooms for hire and we are a licenced wedding venue.
