| Events in Knighton | 10 Places to Stay

The old market town of Knighton lies on the border of England and Wales on the banks of the River Teme. The Weslh name for town, Tref –y- Clawdd translting as the town on the dyke whilst the English name of Knighton is said to be derived from settlement of the knights, and both interpretations are correct. Located in Mid Wales the town of Knighton straddles the border between England and Wales, where Powys meets Shropshire and has an historic past located around mid way along Offa’s Dyke Path – its close association with the town is evident after years of lobbying it is a designated National Trail with a dedicated information centre that is enjoyed by thousands of visitors every year. If you spend time in Knighton then it is worth exploring the narrow streets where there are many traditional, and local shops, and there is the market which is still held today around the clock tower. From the top of the hill you will see how the town grew down the hill, originally established close to the castle at the top as confidence and the town both grew it stretched down the hill. Today Knighton is not just for ramblers to enjoy, take time to visit this interesting town and to enjoy the hospitality that it has to offer.
