Tourist Attractions:
  • Hay Castle's: Plans are underway to restore this part Norman, Jacobean and Victorian castle in the centre of Hay into a lively cultural space. For now you can explore Hay Castle's grounds and visit the Honesty Bookshop and other eclectic shops. I love the view from the top of the steps – it’s one of the best in Hay. Visit website
  • Arthur's Stone, Bredwardine: Like many prehistoric monuments in western England and Wales, this tomb has been linked to King Arthur since before the 13th century. According to legend, it was here that Arthur slew a giant who left the impression of his elbows on one of the stones as he fell. Visit website
  • Longtown Castle: A powerful thick-walled round keep dating from around 1200, characteristic of the Welsh Borders, on a large earthen mound within a stonewalled bailey. Set in the beautiful Olchon valley, with magnificent views of the Black Mountains. Visit website
  • Dore Abbey: A former Cistercian abbey, much Dore Abbey's original medieval building has been used as a parish church since the 16th century. The remaining parts are either ruined or have disappeared entirely. Visit website
Eating and Drinking:
  • The Globe At Hay: Set in the Institute of Art and Ideas at the Globe, amidst various art installations, philosophy lectures, dance classes and live jazz, the Globe café offers a haven of coffee, cake and hearty fare for culture vultures in search of a boost. As a reformed and quirkily modified old chapel, the ambience of The Globe café is second to none. Visit website
  • The Swan At Hay: Situated just outside of Hay-On-Wye’s popular centre, an ideal location for a moment’s peace and tranquillity. Inspired by a collision between French cuisine and dishes native to Herefordshire and the Welsh Marches, the menu is a wonderful collection of hearty ingredients transformed into elegant, delicate dishes.

  • Old Black Lion: The dinner menu yokes local classics together with international flavours, such as locally sourced lamb served with pearl barley and fiery Spanish chorizo or roast pork doused in French calvados. Visit website
Food Stores:
  • Hay Market: Every Thursday, Hay Market is a bustling place with shoppers working their way around stalls piled high with tasty fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat, fish, bread, cakes – even falafels! Other stalls sell plants, vintage wares, clothes and gifts. There’s also a smaller Saturday market in the newly renovated Visit website

Sporting Attractions and Activities:
  • Paddle Down The Wy: For a dreamy way to burn off a few calories, canoe or kayak downstream from Wye Valley Canoes in Glasbury to Hay. This is a particularly idyllic stretch of the river, with small beaches to stop at on the way. Hay Deli sells very tasty locally made sausage rolls which make great picnic fare. Visit website

Or hire a Renault Twizy through the Eco Travel Network for £45 per day and drive to the parking area just below Hay Bluff for a brisk, 30-minute walk that even young children can manage.
