Details

The Wonders of Whitestone Walk (Three quarters of a mile, 1.2 kilometres).
Discover some historic viewpoints along the ‘Wonders of Whitestone’ trail overlooking the dramatic Wye gorge and river. These viewpoints are on the route of the Wye Valley Walk which runs from Chepstow all the way to the source of the River Wye in Mid Wales.

The Duchess Ride Trail (2.5 miles, 4 kilometres).
Why not try a section of the Wye Valley Walk and take in these views - the best possibly being the Duchess Ride Viewpoint (with a welcome bench – great lunch spot!). This overlooks the Wye Valley with views stretching to the Bristol Channel and beyond on a clear day.
