OFFA'S DYKE PATH passes through some of the most attractive landscapes that either Wales or England has to offer. The Anglo-Welsh borderlands known as the Welsh Marches bear numerous scars of old battles and skirmishes. In places you can sense the old antipathy. Ruined castles, lovely valleys and old border towns contribute to the historical ambiance of the walk. The Welsh Marches offer today’s explorer numerous natural and historic sites to visit and experience. You’ll love it!

Route of Offa's Dyke Path
Our Offa's Dyke journey - 304 km over 17 days.

Offa's Dyke Path is an amazing path along the Anglo-Welsh border. Wales is the Celtic land of mystery, myth and magic. It has been host to mighty wizards and legendary kings. Poet, painter and walker alike have appreciated Wales’ dramatic landscapes and her moody vistas. Her borderland with England had been the arena for much turmoil over the past two thousand years since the Roman invasion.

When to Go

The thing about travel is that any time is the right time. It’s just that you will have different experiences. We began our walk in early May, which is mid-late spring in England and Wales. The most popular time is summer, from June to August. However during summer, the numbers of walkers can add accommodation problems adding further challenges to the walk.
