The Vale of Glamorgan situated on the coast between the Gower and Cardiff, offers many varied walking routes. The Vale, as it's known locally, includes the southernmost point of mainland Wales, fertile rolling countryside and the dramatic Heritage Coast, with towering cliffs and remote beaches.

During the Vale of Glamorgan Walking Festival,  you can enjoy a spectacular variety of walks for all levels, discovering a maze of footpaths, country lanes, historic villages and churches, along with fine dining and country inns.

There are walks for all ages and abilities. No matter if you are an experienced walker, a leisure walker or a family there will be something for you. Walks will be of varying duration and challenge in a variety of different geographical areas – coast, clifftop, open countryside, hill, woodland and park as detailed on the website.
