About the trail

During the 8th century, King Offa of Mercia ordered a great dyke to be built to mark the western boundary of his kingdom with Wales. The Offa's Dyke Path follows the course of this ancient earthwork from Chepstow to Prestatyn, passing through scenery of great beauty and variety along the way.

The trail visits a succession of historic border towns and attractive villages including Monmouth, Hay-on-Wye and Welshpool. There is also plenty of historic interest along the trail, including Chepstow Castle, the ruin of Tintern Abbey and the imposing stronghold of White Castle, to name just a few.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

“Just completed the Offa’s Dyke Path and overall I had an excellent experience. The path was challenging – and at some places, not well marked, but the scenery and the people we met along the way were all excellent. I always enjoy these holidays – much more so than sitting on a cruise ship.”
