Offa's Dyke, walking holiday in Wales

Offa's Dyke and Wales Walking Holidays

Follow the River Teme just eight miles upstream and you cross the border into Wales.  This is a fantastic walking area, dramatic hills, big open landscapes, and an amazing history.

Offa’s Dyke is a massive 1200 year old earthwork boundary, which runs on or close to the modern border between England and Wales. Despite all the fighting between the English and the Welsh, about 80 miles of the earthworks still survive and the best preserved parts are in this central area of the English/ Welsh border. Offa’s Dyke is now a National Long Distance waymarked, walking trail, running “sea to sea” from Prestatyn in the north to Chepstow in the south. A total of 177 miles.
