Ross-On-Wye, everything you need
Overlooking the River Wye and the picturesque Herefordshire countryside, Ross has long been a magnet for visitors. Renowned for its rich history and stunning scenery, today it is a thriving, yet traditional town with good schools and amenities, shopping facilities and road links.
With a mix of high street and independent shops and a host of eateries, cafes and restaurants, Ross-on-Wye makes a great area for spending quality leisure time and is fast building a reputation as a ‘gastro town’. The town’s iconic 17th century Market House still hosts twice weekly markets and ‘Made in Ross’ a collective of local artists, artisans and craft workers who regularly display a range of individual works.
There’s a wealth of events and festivals to explore all year round, many centred on the riverside, alongside the town’s rowing club. From regattas to Dragon Boat racing, to the River Festival and the annual Hedgehog Festival – the symbol of the town – to national dog events and fire-walking spectaculars, Ross has something for everyone.
