Ross-on-Wye Certificated Locations

For dramatic views and breathtaking scenery, consider a visit to Ross-on-Wye - often hailed as the birthplace of tourism.

In the 18th century, Reverend Gilpin spotted an opportunity to make the most of the town’s scenic surroundings and subsequently launched The Picturesque Wye Tour.

The town sits above the River Wye, and forms the southern gateway to Herefordshire, the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, and the incredible Symonds Yat.

It goes without saying that this is a stunning spot for a walk, and for a truly epic vista it is worth making your way to the The Prospect Viewpoint in St Mary’s Churchyard, or taking a stroll along part of the Wye Valley Walk.
