A new compendium of adventures, from the best-selling and award-winning Wild Guide series, now released for Wales and the Marches (Herefordshire and Shropshire). Guiding you to over 1000 secret places and wild adventures, including slow food treats and quirky places to stay, this book is perfect for the discerning explorer seeking unusual things to do off the beaten track.

Discover secret sandy beaches lapped by turquoise seas, and dramatic limestone cliffs honeycombed with sea caves; watch the sunrise from inside an ancient cromlech, and conquer ruined castles and snow-covered peaks; wander through enchanted woods and dive into crystal-clear waterfalls; descend into tunnels and caverns, or swim in a pure mountain tarn overflowing with legend. Then feast by the fire of a cosy inn and stargaze from your tent or sheepskin-strewn hideaway.
