Bishop’s Castle is home to the Three Tuns Brewery, the oldest brewery still in operation in the country.
The sheer number of pubs reminds us that Bishop's Castle was once a drovers town - a watering hole for both them and their cattle on their way to market. With the breweries, many eating places and a lively events calendar – it really is no wonder people keep coming back.
The Town has a most unusual museum, the Elizabethan House on Crutches, which is supported by wooden posts over a cobbled alley. There are lots of lovely traditional shops, including butchers, grocers and ironmongers, as well as bookshops, handmade furniture and art galleries, which line the main street. Bishop's Castle has also become a Walkers Are Welcome award-winning town.
