Planning a visit to Wales?

If yes – be sure to visit Hay-on-Wye which is located on the Welsh/English border in the United Kingdom on the banks of the River Wye.  Referred to as the National Book Town of Wales, it is picturesque – replete with castle ruins, mansions and more than 30 bookshops!   Delve into a castle, a cinema and a fire station and be delighted to discover that they too are bookshops!

Each bookshop has their own “specialty”. For example, you’ve got Murder and Mayhem for detective fiction, true crime and horror; Rose’s Books for rare and out-of-print children’s and illustrated books; C. Arden Bookseller for natural history, botany & gardening, and beekeeping; and Addyman Annexe for a large stock that covers all subjects.”
