Meander along the River Wye, enjoy beautiful, scenic views and have fun crossing the wibbly wobbly rope bridge at Biblins. Take home a piece of history as you visit the mysterious limestone King Arthur’s cave. The guided walk begins in the small village of Whitchurch where there is road parking and a fine cafe. As you head off on the road, you will soon be alongside the winding River Wye. Next, a refreshment break at a picturesque café in the village of Symonds Yat.

A peaceful forest walk now ensues as you head to locate King Arthur’s Cave which is positioned less than 100m above the river on a hill. Soon after, you will visit the remains of an Iron Age Hill Fort, said to be the place where King Vortigern had his last stand before disappearing from history.
