Crickhowell Walking Festival
Walkers will love the Crickhowell Walking Festival in Powys. From February 27 to March 6 there will be more than 80 guided walks in some of Wales’s most beautiful countryside at different levels of duration and difficulty to suit everyone. There’s also a programme of alternative daytime activities for non-walkers and evening events for all.
Visit the festival website on www.crickhowellfestival.com for details of concerts, talks and quizzes, many of which are free. Call 01873 811970 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
It’s snowdrop season in Northern Ireland and you can see some of the best examples at the Argory, an 1820s Irish gentry house surrounded by a 320-acre wooded riverside estate in County Armagh.
On Saturday and Sunday afternoons until the end of February, you can join in a guided estate walk to see the wonderful displays of snowdrops lovingly planted over the years by estate staff and volunteers. Alternatively, choose to follow one of the recommended routes without a guide. Snowdrop plants are also available to buy. Relax after your walk in the estate coffee shop.
There’s no need to book, but usual admission charges apply.
