The Town of Books, Hay-on-Wye

Anyone who loves looking at collectible books or out-of-print books would also love a trip to the town of books, Hay-on-Wye in Wales. Actually, most of the town is in Wales, but eastern parts of it do reach over into England.

Books are a year-round feature throughout the town, but once a year for 10 days starting at the end of May, Hay-on-Wye hosts the Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts. Hundreds of events take place around the tented festival village highlighting writers, poets, comedians, philosophers, musicians and much more.
