Local Attractions

Whittington Castle stands immediately opposite our Festival venue and provides not only a generous car park, but a spectacular environment for a pre-concert picnic or just a gentle wander. 

There is plenty else to see and enjoy in the area between concerts:

Old Oswestry hillfort was first fortified three thousand years ago, and the views into Wales along Offa’s Dyke, just a couple of miles away, are stunning.

At popular family attraction Park Hall Farm a mile away a set of trenches has been recreated to represent the trench warfare of WW1 and other conflicts.

Pistyll Rhaeadr, a waterfall with a 240-foot drop off the edge of the nearby Berwyn Mountains, is especially spectacular after heavy rain.

Walking across the 126-foot high Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is not for the faint-hearted!

And there are the castles of Chirk and Powis, and several Great Little Trains of Wales, all within half-an-hour’s drive.
