Oswestry - where to eat

Llanfair & Welshpool Railway | Powis Castle | Llanrhaeadr Waterfall | Rodney’s Pillar 

Llanymynech could be your first stop and it is right on the border. The heritage area showcases the old Limeworks with its Hoffman Kiln and walks along the canal show an abundance of wildlife. A climb up the rocks will reward you with stunning views over Shropshire or you could play a round of golf on the only course that is in both England and Wales.
Rodney’s Pillar – Another climb awaits and the views are worth it! Breidden Hill topped by Rodney’s Pillar soars 350 metres over the valley looking towards the market town of Welshpool.
Welshpool and Llanfair Railway– Another market town and the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway begins in town and then steams through peaceful Mid Wales countryside to Llanfair Caereinon. Check out their special train events.
Powis Castle– National Trust property Powis Castle and its world famous gardens are an essential detour. Discover the fascinating Clive Of India’s collection and wonder at the enormous yew trees on the terraced gardens.
Lake Vyrnwy – make a day for all the family at this man made lake.  Walk the 12 mile circuit or hire a bike. How about canoeing or kayaking, sailing or windsurfing? It’s a great place for bird watching too if you would like something a little less active.
