When to Visit Hay on Wye

During the famous Hay Festival of Literature and Arts, accommodation is usually in very short supply, and many of the hotels and B&Bs are booked up over a year in advance. Whatever accommodation you choose, you should book it as early as possible if you wish to attend the festival.

Besides the famous literary festival, the town also hosts the Hay on Wye Dark Skies Festival in April, when keen astronomers can spend the weekend gazing at the stars and appreciating the unspoilt night skies of the Brecon Beacons Dark Skies Reserve.

The Hay on Wye Walking Festival is held in October, and offers a programme of around 50 guided walks to suit all ages and abilities, lasting from a few hours to whole days. You can enjoy the beautiful scenery while learning a little about the history and landscape of the area from local experts.
