Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye

Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye is the most well-used section of the River Wye. The distance between the two locations is approximately 5.5 miles.


The launching point at Glasbury is on the beach area just above the bridge. There used to be a 50p per canoe fee payable to the post office. This is no longer payable since the Riverside restaurant took over the old shop. It is a really nice venue which is definitely worth a visit! Owners Charlie and Jane are really nice people and create a very warm friendly atmosphere. There is a great outdoor area and the food is good too.


Hay on Wye is a very popular tourist town due to its book and antique shops and in recent years the Hay Festival of literature. It has a wealth of attractions and is a great place to wander around. It is home to great cafes and restaurants and the Shepherd's Ice Cream Parlour.
