Visit the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean

Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink

Reasons to Visit the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean this week: 10-16th July 2017

July brings many activities to the #DeanWye from concerts and folk festivals, to open air cinema and a party in Chepstow Castle. All involve food and drink and live entertainment. If that’s not for you then enjoy the many art exhibitions and craft workshops that are on offer this week, or step back in time with a monk at Tintern Abbey!
