The Wye Valley National Landscape is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, looked after by a small team working in partnership with other organisations to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Wye Valley, to increase understanding and enjoyment of its special qualities and to foster the social and economic well-being of local communities.

How long do you have? Just an hour? Then you won’t want to miss the romantic ruins of Tintern Abbey, in the prettiest of settings surrounded by river, trees and hills. An afternoon? Take a short boat trip along the Wye at Symonds Yat and then head up to Yat Rock to take in the Wye Valley’s most iconic view. An evening to spare? Make your way up the Kymin, near Monmouth, and savour the view as the sun sets over Monmouthshire’s stunning countryside. All day? Relax into a different pace of life, floating down the Wye in a canoe, and stopping for a leisurely lunch at a riverside pub. A night time outing? Head out at dusk to hear the amazing calls of nightjars on a summer’s evening on Beacon Hill near Trellech. Or even ten days? The Wye Valley Walk follows the River Wye for 136 miles from the source to sea, or vice versa.
