Attractions near Trefonen
Chirk Castle (7 Miles)*
Few places welcome visitors with a "bloody" hand, but the Myddelton family coat-of-arms above the elaborate gates does indeed incorporate just such a symbol.
Llangollen Railway (10 Miles)*
Part of the Ruabon to Barmouth line, the Railway closed to passenger traffic in 1965, and to goods in 1968. The track and signalling were removed the following month, and for seven years the buildings and trackbed were left at the mercy of nature.
Llangollen Motor Museum (11 Miles)*
See the cars that Grandad used to drive. More than thirty vehicles are on display, ranging from the 1920s to the 1970s - so there's sure to be something you remember from your own childhood - whenever that was.
Valle Crucis Abbey (11 Miles)*
The evocative ruins of Valle Crucis lie in green fields beneath Llangollen's steep-sided mountains. In medieval times, this was a remote spot (ideal for the austere Cistercian monks, who deliberately sought out wild and lonely places).
Powysland Museum (12 Miles)*
The groundfloor displays illustrate the history and development of life in Montgomeryshire from the earliest prehistoric settlers to the 20th century population.
Powis Castle and Garden (12 Miles)*
It is hard to believe that the oldest parts of Powis Castle were begun around 800 years ago and some of the oaks were planted at a similar time. The castle was built by the Welsh Princes.
Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse (13 Miles)*
There's a warm welcome at Bangor-on-Dee Races throughout the year. Set in glorious countryside beside the River Dee this perfect country course provides exciting racing with top trainers and jockeys at every meeting.
