Montgomery Castle was built by Henry III in 1224, on a rocky promontory above what became the town of Montgomery. It’s an ideal site with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and across Offa’s Dyke into England.
After Wales and England were unified in 1536, the town played an important administrative role in the region and even had the county named after it (Montgomeryshire).
The town has retained its original street plan, its charm and good looks, and has fine examples of Georgian architecture dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
Did you know? Montgomery had the first gaol in the UK with a toilet in each cell.
