The Celtic Trail

The Celtic Trail covers 377 miles from end to end starting at the Severn Bridge and running to the tip of Pembrokeshire, it is one of the most glorious and diverse walks/rides on this earth. It shows off the best that Wales has to offer; showcasing varied scenery from green valleys, former industrial heartland, to canal tow paths, disused railways, forests, mountains and even cities and coastal paths. Your journey along the Celtic Trail is mostly traffic free and gives you the opportunity to enjoy the variety of the Welsh culture, natural beauty and history.

There is so much history along the route that you will never be stuck for something to marvel at. There are for example many standing stones all with a story, such as the dolmen of Carreg Samson, which lies on a site offering awe-inspiring views across the bay overlooking Strumble Head. More recent history is also covered as you pass by old airfields where bombers climbed into the sky to protect us. Nowadays this is a nature reserve where you can find many interesting or protected species of flora and animals.

Obviously being so long, the walk cannot be undertaken in one go and you may want to take advantage of one of the many hotels, cottages and B&B Wales has to offer. Many of these take advantage of local produce and Pembrokeshire especially seems to be filled with people devoted to producing quality local foods. What better way to do them justice than to sit down after a hard days travelling and enjoy the fruits of their labour in stunning locations and welcoming accommodation.

Many people undertake the walk on foot and many on bicycle. Whichever way you want to appreciate the trail you will find history, scenery and a warm welcome in abundance. Why not book a hotel in Wales or a B&B in Wales for every night along your journey ensuring a warm comfortable bed and a refreshed vigour for the next day’s travels and experiences.
