Things to see & do in Ross-on-Wye

High on a sandstone cliff overlooking a large loop in the River Wye is the historic market town of Ross on Wye. The view of Ross on Wye is dominated by the spire of St Mary's Church (pictured above), which is visible for many miles around. Built of red sandstone in the 13th century, St Mary's has some interesting features and is well worth a visit.

Present day Ross on Wye has much to offer the visitor, with twice weekly markets being held under the sixteenth century Market House. The town has a number of antique shops and small independent retailers and galleries.

A good way to explore the river is to take a river cruise, these are available from Symonds Yat East or West, weather permitting, or you may wish to take a bird's eye view of the river from a hot air balloon. Walking has become a very popular activity in the region, and there are walks to suit all abilities.
