The Kington Walking Festival is the primary annual event of the Kington Walks charity with the Kington Walks Festival being held in September as usual. By popular demand, however, the committee are introducing a Spring Weekend to give everyone a chance to experience the glorious countryside at a different time of year. Think daffodils, bluebells, wood anemones, lambs, and trees in bud and maybe blossom!
Kington is one of the great small market towns of Britain. Situated close to the Welsh border it was for centuries a centre for cattle drovers, so a web of footpaths and byways, accessible on foot from the town centre await discovery by present day walkers. The Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, the Herefordshire Trail, Mortimer Trail from Ludlow, and the Wyche Way from Broadway all pass through (or start/finish) in the town.
The base cost for most walks is £5.50 for a half day and £7.50 for a longer walk. Some walks involve an additional cost to cover transport, food or admission charges.

If you are looking for somewhere to stop off for some suitable refreshments during your walks the wonderful Border Bean Cafe is open on the 12th and 13th of April, offering lunches, delicious homemade cakes and takeaways too.
Border Bean is situated on the High Street in Kington, opposite the commemorative Victorian town clock in the small and quirky market town of Kington, just off the Offa’s Dyke path.
Wonderful smells of freshly baked cheese scones, bubbling pots of soup and a tempting array of delicious cakes proudly home-baked on the premises. Vegan, vegetarian options and food intolerance’s are catered for too. Bread and Eccles cakes are sourced from a local artisan baker.
