Details

Montgomery, in Welsh, Trefaldwyn; meaning "The Town of Baldwin is a small town with a big history. The town of nearly 1,300 people is situated in the Welsh Marches, (the lands along the English and Welsh border) and Iron Age Celts, the Romans, the Saxons, the Normans, the English Civil War and many other historical forces all left their mark here.

Fast forward to the 21st century and Montgomery, a Georgian gem, is tucked away from the madding crowds, but just 3 miles from the A483. With its medieval street layout, imposing Town Hall, mix of Georgian, Victorian and timber framed buildings and an active and generous community, it’s a place where time seems to stand still. And, with a wealth of comfortable and friendly places to stay, as well as to eat and drink, you can be sure of a warm welcome in the town.
.
Whatever the season, Montgomery has plenty for everyone. Discover the town’s heritage on our family-friendly Quiz Trails or find your path along the Montgomery Trails walking and cycling routes – with something to suit every level of ability. Why not test your navigation skills and go Geocache hunting (think treasure hunting for youngsters and grown-ups)! Take in the panoramic view from Montgomery Castle’s ruined battlements, explore the treasure trove of historical artefacts in The Old Bell Museum and marvel at the detail of the miniature vehicles in Cloverlands Model Car Museum.

Tickle your taste buds in one of the town’s quaint cafes selling delicious homemade cakes and locally made produce. Alternatively, dine at the hotel with its award-winning bistro restaurant or opt for a tasty bar meal served with a local beer. No time to stop? Then pick up some crispy fish ‘n chips on the go. And - if you fancy a tipple – we can do that too! Montgomery is blessed with a brewery, vineyards and local cider producers.

Fancy a little retail therapy? Then take a stroll around the local shops offering gifts, fashion, home interior wares, books and flowers. Oh, and we have a traditional ironmonger too selling everything you could ever need. A must-see attraction in its own right – you’ll travel back in time when you step through the door.

Come and join the community and enjoy one of our many events. From the Montgomery Beer and Folk Festival, the July Street Fair fun, watching Shakespeare performed outdoors at the Castle, to the Annual Show or lace up your hiking boots and put your best foot forward at the autumn Walking Festival. June 2020 will see the town hosting Monty Litfest, with talks and activities on all things literary.
