The setting for Offa's Dyke Centre, Knighton is a busy market town which annually attracts thousands of walkers.

Situated in Powys, it lies on the England-Wales border halfway along Offa’s Dyke, an earthwork built in the 8th century by the Mercian king Offa.

It employed natural boundaries such as rivers and hills.

The long-distance Offa’s footpath, which passes through Knighton, runs from Prestatyn for 177 miles to Chepstow.
