Kington Market Town

Kington is an historic market town on the English/Welsh border, and though on the western side of Offa’s Dyke, it has been an English town for a thousand years.
The town still has a regular livestock market, weekly Country Market and regular Local Food and Craft Market and monthly Art, Craft and Vintage Market plus the popular Festive Food from the Borders at the beginning of December to kick off the festive season and a Summer Food Fair in June.

Riverside Recreation Ground

Kington possesses a most attractive riverside recreation ground which houses the town’s cricket club and is the venue for many local outdoor events. Kington Golf Club’s 18-hole course on Bradnor Hill is said to be the highest in England, over 390 metres above sea level. It is a “Border Town” in the Marches in an area where it rightly claims to be a centre for walking and hosts it’s own annual walking festival Kington Walks in September. New for 2018 the Spring Walking Festival 20th-22nd April. The local countryside can also offer quiet country lanes for those visitors who prefer to cycle.

Commemorative Clock Tower

The west end of Kington is dominated by the tall clock tower commemorating Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. Adjacent to this is Kington’s Museum. Standing high on a hill overlooking Kington is St. Mary’s Church, for services and other local churches click here.
