The Judge’s Lodging in Presteigne, Powys has been voted in the ‘Top 10 best days out for families in Wales’ by Good To Know Media and Essentials Magazine.


Described in the published entry as ‘a kid’s dream’ for its ‘hands-on’ policy, which allows visitors to explore the life of the Victorian inhabitants of the building to their heart’s content, The Judge’s Lodging is understandably proud of its ability to enchant all ages.

Staff at the Victorian courthouse are absolutely delighted and hope it encourages families to visit them. “Historic houses are often overlooked when thoughts turn to family fun,” says the museum’s development manager Gaby Rivers, “but we aim to make history as fun as we can here for all ages.”

The Judge’s Lodging  is one of many attractions in Mid Wales and is great to be on the award list.  The letter the visitor attraction received from Good to Know stated: “We are sure we won’t be the only ones wanting to return again and again ..... we are always looking to inspire our readers …. Days out are a great way to spend some quality moments with the family and when we considered the overall cost of a day out with you, and how much families would get out of their adventure, we felt their time would be really well-spent at your location.”


The letter went on to praise “the focus you have towards children, their learning and families”.


The Judge’s Lodging is open from Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays.
