The English/Welsh border has had a turbulent history, yet the landscape remains calm and unspoilt. Walkers can enjoy the long-distance paths such as the Shropshire Way, Offa’s Dyke Path and Glyndwr’s Way, as well as the beautiful heritage coasts of the Lleyn Peninsula and Pembrokeshire Coastal Paths.
There is also plenty of opportunity for shorter walks in Wales, in areas such as Shropshire, Gower and the Brecon Beacons.
Whether you are interested in hillwalking, ridge walking or scrambling, Snowdonia has it all, not forgetting of course, the ascent of Snowdon itself. These high mountains mean that there are also deep valleys for low-level walking, in the Wye Valley or South Wales Valleys perhaps.
