Hay on Wye is famous for hosting one of the world's best literary festivals - The Hay Festival of Literature & Arts takes place every year and the 30 bookshops of the town open their doors for the legendary event. Writers, philosophers, and artists have been frequenting this festival since it started in 1988, and the famous guests and inspirational surroundings have earned Hay on Wye a place on the global map.
The literature festival isn't the only attraction of Hay on Wye; the town has a fascinating and rich history that dates to medieval times, with Hay Castle being a lingering reminder of the long-standing feud between these small border towns and their Saxon neighbours. It is also surrounded by an outstanding landscape and many SSSIs, including The Warren, where you'll find cheeky otters and curious kingfishers. Far from being out in the wilds of mid-Wales, this is a fascinating place to visit and is a cultural haven for both locals and visitors alike.
