Ever since the 18th century, when it was discovered by artists, writers and poets like Turner, Coleridge and Wordsworth, the Wye has been described as the most beautiful river in Wales. This is the borderland where King Arthur ruled, the Romans bathed, the Normans settled and pilgrims worshipped. Today it is a place where grapes ripen, salmon leap, markets bustle and culture thrives.
Walkers and bikers love the region for its natural beauty, nature trails as well as great food.
