Hay-on-Wye / Y-Gelli
The Essential
At the northern end of the Black Mountains, this market town is famous for its second-hand bookshops and its annual Literary Festival. A maze of quiet narrow streets fronted by grey stone properties surround the feudal castle, its high walls pierced by windows open to the sky. Like many other buildings in the town, it has also been converted into a bookshop, partly open-air.
