Walking holiday - Offa's Dyke National Trail

Wales Walking Holidays along Offa’s Dyke & Glyndwr’s Way

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 & Welsh, about 80 miles of the earthworks still survive & 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 173 miles.

Glyndwr’s Way is a new National walking trail opened in 2001. It is named after Owain Glyndwr - a descendent of the royal Welsh princes. He led a rebellion against the English in the 15th century, to re-establish Welsh independence. His dream ended a few years later but still remains an icon of Welsh culture. The complete trail is 135 miles long and starts at Knighton in the Teme Valley.
