Welcome to the 4th Hay Walking Festival, taking place from Wednesday 8th – Sunday 12th October 2014.
We have a very full programme of walks and events with a few innovations this year:
*We've introduced some leisurely walks, to suit those who enjoy a good walk, but at a relaxed pace
*We are offering a three-day Middle Wye Adventure, a 40-mile section of the lovely Wye Valley walk, from Hereford to Erwood. Do all three days if you can, or just join us for part.
*Have you walked up Cusop Hill at dusk? We are organising a torch light walk on Friday 10th, ending with good soup and bacon butties in Cusop Village hall. We hope that walkers of all ages will join us
Click on the walks link for a full view of everything on offer, and get booking: last year many walks were fully sold out well before the event. Last-minute tickets, information and advice will be available in the Tourist Information Bureau in Hay main car park, Oxford Rd, throughout the festival.
And just to whet your appetite: here are a couple of extracts from the very positive feedback we received after last year's festival:
"The walks were all well thought through, varied and the guides were first class. It was a delightful few days. I went on four walks and they all met or exceeded my expectations. I feel that I now know a lot more about Hay and its environs. And I enjoyed myself."
"I very much enjoyed the weekend and found people welcoming, helpful and friendly. It's a lot to organise and I think this was done very well. I would definitely come back again "
