Visit here for free and learn about Owain Glyndwr - most interesting and very helpful volunteer who greeted us in Welsh and English. Lovely carved chair.

A very instructive historical interpretation done in a manner that was accessible and with elements to suit all ages e.g. the helmets you could wear.

For all true Welshmen, Owain Glyndwr is a national legend, so to stand on the spot where he organized his first parliament, to feel his presence is fantastic. Although not large, this centre tells the story of his exploits, with a few nicely arranged displays.

This is a nice little exhibition which explains the ancient history of the town especially about the original prince of Wales Owain Glyndwr. It is well laid out with plenty of useful information housed in a medieval style building.

Very small but worth a visit to get a flavour of the area, free to enter. Story of Welsh fight against the English, in original buildings.
