Historic Montgomery in the Mid Wales Marches

Montgomery is the old county town of Montgomeryshire which has a history that stretches back to Roman occupation. It has always been a town of strategic importance. Montgomery Castle, built in the early 13th century by the Norman Roger de Montgomery, played a significant role in the Glyndwr uprising, before it was damaged beyond repair by Parliamentary forces in the Civil War.

Montgomery Castle remains popular today, as does nearby Powis Castle & Gardens and Dolforwyn Castle. Both buildings illustrate the geographical importance of Montgomery. They were built to protect an important crossing of the River Severn that could control all military and trade access to west Wales. The Old Bell Museum provides a fantastic record of Montgomery’s past, with a permanent collection of artefacts and antiques.

Today visitors are charmed by the Georgian Town square, the story of Robber's Grave, and the rolling countryside through which Offa’s Dyke passes only a mile from the town. Montgomery is also noted for the quality of its pubs and restaurants; including the Dragon Hotel, an old coaching inn, the Monty's Brewery Visitor Centre and Cloverland Museum. Nearby, you will also find Kerry Vale Vineyard
