The River Wye

The nations’ favourite river

The Wye was voted the nation’s favourite river in 2010. One of the most natural rivers in Britain, the Wye rises in the mountains of mid-Wales and flows south for some 150 miles, becoming part of the border between Wales and England before meeting the Severn. In its lower stretches, it meanders for 45 miles (72 km) through the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, from just south of Hereford down to Chepstow.
