Welcome to Oswestry & the Welsh Borderlands

This is Oswestry, where Shropshire meets Wales

Today, Oswestry is a thriving border market town with a lively café culture that enjoys a growing reputation for its interesting mix of independent shops and a rich programme of festivals, events, arts and culture throughout the year.

2014 commemorates the start of the Great War. This has a special significance for Oswestry as the birthplace of soldier and poet, Wilfred Owen.

A visit to Oswestry is a family adventure too with award-winning farm attractions, castles, trains, canal trips and a host of outdoor activities.
