Hay-on-Wye Walking Festival - 11-15th October

Hay Walking Festival

Hay-on-Wye Walking Festival – Accommodation Availability

As leaves start to change colour and we head into Autumn, next month’s Hay-on-Wye Walking Festival is just around the corner. With cooler air temperatures the landscape in a transition of colour, this is the perfect season for walking in the hills of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Now in its second year, the Hay-on-Wye Walking Festival offers 57 walks across 5 days between 11th and 15th October.

As well as being renowned as a town of books and for its large annual literary festival, Hay-on-Wye is also a wonderful centre for walking. The countryside of Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains, Wye Valley, Golden Valley, Offa’s Dyke Trail and Black and White Villages of Herefordshire are all easily accessible.

But this is more than just walking. Festival-goers have the opportunity to learn new skills and find out more about the local countryside. From acquiring better navigational and map-reading skills, to learning Nordic walking, from trying geocaching to finding out about the geology and archaeology of the area; there is a full and varied programme for all ages and abilities.

A short programme of evening events is also planned, including a lively festival ceilidh, pub quiz, evening of local song and screening of the adaptation of the book Resistance, inspired and filmed in these parts.

You can book tickets for walks and events here . A couple of walks are sold out and others are getting low, so please hurry!
