Needless to say it\u0026rsquo;s quite a favourite with walkers, and two National Trails meet in the area so it\u0026rsquo;s a great base to start a hike from and enjoy the scenery. The town itself has the feeling of being largely untouched by time, and a day exploring will take you past historic buildings, sleepy churches and through streets so snug they\u0026rsquo;re affectionately known as \u0026lsquo;the narrows\u0026rsquo;.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","Alias":"knighton","MainImageLocation":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/emily.judge/2018/11/Knighton .jpg/carousel.jpg","PointOfInterests":[{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"The Judge\u0027s Lodging","Body":"\u003cp\u003eStep inside one of \u0026ldquo;the most elegant apartments for a judge in all England and Wales\u0026rdquo; (the words of a judge back in 1855) and back in time with a visit to The Judge\u0026rsquo;s Lodging. This attraction has changed little since its Victorian heyday as a judge\u0026rsquo;s home, and visitors can still see the original furniture, the holding cells and the courtroom.

The judge\u0026rsquo;s apartments have been beautifully restored so visitors can get a glimpse of the opulence they would have enjoyed, and as the sounds of old trials echo throughout the huge courtroom it\u0026rsquo;s impossible not to feel daunted at the thought of standing to be judged as rows of onlookers stared.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eFind out what happened to the duck thief, William Morgan, who experienced exactly that in the courtroom, and listen as character voices bring the past to life via the audio tour.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","AtGlance":null,"Categories":[],"Inspirations":[],"HotPick":false,"LocationLatitude":52.2921,"LocationLongitude":-3.00487,"MainImage":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/102/2014/02/Judge.jpg/carousel.jpg","LogoImage":null,"Alias":"wales/knighton/the-judges-lodging","MainImageSmall":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_1x1/users/102/2014/02/Judge.jpg/carousel.jpg","Locations":[]},{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"Knighton Town Crier Festival","Body":"\u003cp\u003eNow Knighton\u0026rsquo;s a pretty peaceful place to visit for much of the year, but if you\u0026rsquo;re ever around during August you might hear shouts, cries and general mayhem \u0026ndash; and that means it\u0026rsquo;s the annual Knighton Town Crier Festival.
