COUNTRY WALKS

Christmas lights walks




by Webmaster, 20th November 2018

Our historic Border towns and cities look spectacular lit up in their festive finery, and these three walks take in the best of the displays, to get you into the Christmas spirit

In the run-up to Christmas, when darkness has descended by mid-afternoon, our towns and cities become magical places.

No matter whether it’s a cold, clear night or the rain’s beating down, our streets are alight with colour and splendour. From giant Christmas trees in town squares to waving Santas and twinkling lights in our high streets, it’s a wonderful time to wander around and experience the hustle and bustle of the festive rush (so long as you’re not in a rush yourself, of course).

Shops get in on the act, too, with displays, grottos, gifts and a whole host of other temptations to lure you inside – all adding to the seasonal buzz.

ROUTE 1: Enjoy Hereford Cathedral lit up behind the River Wye

ROUTE 2: See castle remains and an ancient well with a gruesome legend in this Shropshire town

ROUTE 3: Get a bird’s eye view of Chester from the city walls
