This walking holiday follows the line of the original Offa’s Dyke from Chepstow on the Severn estuary, to Prestatyn on the North Wales coast. Offa’s Dyke was built by King Offa in the 8th century to mark the border between Wales and England. A walking holiday along Offa’s Dyke Path offers varied walking and scenery, with views over some of the most spectacular mountains and valleys in Wales. It passes through many interesting towns and villages, like Chepstow, Hay on Wye, Kington, Knighton and Llangollen.
