Watkins Way
27th October, 2021

The Watkins Way tours 106 miles of glorious Herefordshire countryside, from the lush Wye Valley to the remote Golden Valley and on to the black and white villages which are surrounded by orchards. Interesting heritage landmarks are dotted along the route, from a beautifully carved church to remote castle ruins, all of them connected by Alfred Watkins' theory of ley lines.

Start planning a fabulous short break with our suggestions for places to stay and eat along the way.
