Wye Valley & Vale of Usk

This is the borderland where King Arthur ruled, the Romans bathed, the Normans settled, pilgrims worshipped and Turner sketched. Today, it’s a place where grapes ripen, salmon leap, markets bustle and culture thrives. Walkers, mountain bikers and canoeists love the place. And a large chunk of it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
