Ross-on-Wye

Traditionally Ross-on-Wye was the start of the Wye Tour. The riverside was a busy place. Pleasure boats left from the river bank near the Hope and Anchor for the trip downstream to Monmouth and Chepstow.

Lord Nelson was just one of many who took the tour from Ross in 1802. The Royal Hotel, a well know local landmark high above the river, was the favoured place to stay at the start of the Wye Tour.
