Welcome to 2016 Chepstow Walking Festival!
We had a fantastic programme for you this year. Whether you are a visitor or live locally, our experienced walk leaders and guides created 22 fabulous walks including some favourites with a different slant and a rare chance to walk around Chepstow Racecourse. We included some evening events this year including a talk by Kevin Walker on 'Forgotten Wales' from the walker's perspective and an evening walk followed by stargazing with Monmouth Astronomical Research Society.
Full details of all walks and events from the Festival can be accessed from the buttons below. If the Festival inspired you to visit Chepstow, check out our 'stay, eat and shop' pages for details of local businesses who support Chepstow Walkers are Welcome.
