Pay a visit to the Offa's Dyke centre in the border town of Knighton, with interactive displays, 'brass rubbings' and stamping for children as well as Tourist Information leaflets.

Access to Offa's Dyke is behind the Centre. There is also some free parking and a children's playpark and toilets.

A shallow river beside the walk is great for children to paddle in.

Another border town is Presteigne where you can stand on the bridge crossing the river with one foot in England and the other in Wales. A stone in the centre of the bridge marks the dividing line.

It's a charming border town where people have time to stand and chat. There is an original high street with butchers, bakers, an excellent fish and chip shop, the popular tourist attraction of the Judge's Lodging with audio tours to take you back into the gas lit 1860's.

Close to Offa's Dyke and again surrounded by spectacular countryside, a visit to Presteigne is a must.
