Kington Walking Festival April 20th – 22nd
April 20 @ 8:00 am - April 22 @ 8:00 pm
Our walking festival returns for its sixth year, already a firm fixture for all who love the great outdoors. Some of the best festivals happen in the smallest towns. Think of Hay – population c 2000 - and literature. Now think of Kington - just up the road from Hay and with a similar population - and walking. Nestled below Hergest Ridge, the historic drovers' town of Kington stands alone from a walking perspective, with more long-distance paths converging on the town than almost anywhere else in the UK. The smallest of the five market towns in Herefordshire, it is also the remotest and there is a definite feel that you are almost in Wales. But despite it's size the town has all the facilities you could want, with plenty of accommodation both within the town, including a youth hostel, and in the surrounding area. (Don't forget to try Cottage Farm B&B). There is a Tourist Information Centre and different independent shops that offer great personal service.
