Glyndwrs Way National Trail is a great way to celebrate Welsh cultural and natural history, with market towns, museums and castles to visit, plus lakes and waterfalls to discover. You can also relive the adventures of Owain Glyndwr, a famous crowned Prince of Wales, at a centre named after him, which has a great interactive exhibit that the kids will enjoy.
The Trail will take you through real farming landscape, the Glaslyn Wildlife Trust Reserve and past the shores of the Clywedog Reservoir. There is a great viewpoint at the reservoir, called the Look Out, which is a sheltered elevated platform that offers amazing panoramic views.
There are some great historical sites, such as Bryntail Mine, Powis Castle and garden, and the Hall at Abby Cwm Hir, which is a splendid Victorian building in the Gothic Revival style.
Lake Vymr is also worth a visit. It is situated on the edge of Snowdonia National Park and has some spectacular waterfalls and plenty of birds to spot.
