The Wye Valley & Forest of Dean

5 Days Half Board by Coach

In a lovely corner of England, beside the undulating border of Wales, the tranquil River Wye eases gently through quintessential rural landscapes. It weaves through proud market towns and pretty villages before flowing through the wooded hills of the Forest of Dean, offering unforgettable views. From our hotel near the historic city of Gloucester we tour through this delightful countryside, with visits to some unique and wonderful places along the way.

Your Excursions

Full day: A full day tour starting with a visit to the ancient cathedral city of Hereford. It’s no more than a market town really, but set amid a peaceful rural landscape of farmland, orchards and half-timbered villages. Then it’s through the Golden Valley for a stop in the eccentric little town of Hay-on-Wye, which is the second-hand book ‘capital’ of Britain, and has its own ‘King’!

Full day: Today we follow the River Wye southwards past Ross-on-Wye into the Forest of Dean, to admire the view of Symonds Yat, with a great loop of the river far below. From the handsome border town of Monmouth we reach the most scenic stretch of the Wye Valley, halting at Tintern Abbey, where the 14th century ruined Abbey has a beautiful setting.

Half day: Today we head for the Severn Valley to reach the historic cathedral city of Worcester where there is time to explore.
