It is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all attractions near this campsite.
Powysland Museum (7 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 (8 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.
Glansevern Hall (11 Miles)*
Over 25 acres of glorious gardens surrounding a Greek revival house of great elegance on the banks of the River Severn.
Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture (12 Miles)*
Andrew Logan's work is of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour. It is an art which resounds with the exuberant excess of a Busby Berkeley musical.
Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery (Rowley's House) (12 Miles)*
Rocks, Romans, China and Costume, Mediaeval Shrewsbury and Shropshire Wildlife.
Shrewsbury Castle and The Shropshire Regimental Museum (12 Miles)*
Spanning nearly a millennium of our history, Shrewsbury Castle's origins date back to Norman attempts to secure the border with Wales.  It's now home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum.
Coleham Pumping Station (12 Miles)*
Magnificent Renshaw beam engines in 1901 pumping house.
Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway (13 Miles)*
The railway was opened in 1903 to link the rural communities to the market town of Welshpool. The gauge of 2 ft 6 inches allowed for tight curves and steep gradients following the contours of the countryside.
Chirk Castle (13 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 (16 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.
