Crowned by a splendid Victorian clock tower, Heol Maengwyn is Machynlleth’s high street. It’s sprinkled with useful shops, galleries, cosy cafés and, on Wednesdays, market stalls, a tradition launched by royal charter in 1291. It was also the site of national hero Owain Glyndŵr’s 1404 parliament – the original Senedd. The Owain Glyndŵr Centre is the local history museum that tells his story. Step back in time as you explore the exhibits that bring to life the captivating story of Owain Glyndŵr, the Welsh rebel leader who established Wales first parliament in this very town.
Alternatively If you’re looking for laughs you probably wouldn’t think of heading to a comedy festival in the ancient capital of Wales. But we’d absolutely recommend that you do. Over the May bank holiday every year, the cream of comedy talent – rising and established – descend on Mach to try out new material, experiment with new formats. Over ten years the Machynlleth Comedy Festival has grown from the best secret in comedy to widely being regarded as the best alternative comedy festival in the UK.
