Details

Corwen is best known for its connections with Owain Glyndwr, who proclaimed himself Prince of Wales on 16 September 1400 from his nearby manor of Glyndyfrdwy, which began his fourteen-year rebellion against English rule. A life-size bronze statue of the prince mounted on his battle horse was installed in The Square in 2007. It commemorates the day he was proclaimed the last true prince of Wales in 1400.

WALKERS ARE WELCOME
Every year on the weekend after the August Bank Holiday weekend, Corwen runs its annual Walking Festival which offers guided walks in the Dee Valley and on the Berwyn Mountains. The Town also offers weekly guided walks throughout the year and navigation training evenings and days in conjunction with Cotswold Outdoors Chester store. With very well signposted walks straight from the town and a large car park Corwen offers so much to the walker. You can even combine several walks with a journey on the Llangollen Railway that proceeds down the Dee Valley from the Town.

The town grew as a centre for cattle drovers. Attractions in Corwen include the motte of a Norman castle, the thirteenth century Church of St Mael and St Sulien, the Capel Rûg built in 1637 by William Salesbury and the recently extended Llangollen Railway.
