Goodrich, Herefordshire
The little village of Goodrich is located close to a bend in the River Wye on the English - Welsh border between the towns of Ross-on-Wye and Symonds Yat. As with many Welsh and English border towns, it was its strategic position, in this case at a crossing point of the River Wye that initiated both the building of its castle and later the village.
Village Centre

The village offers easy access to the Brecon Beacons National Park, the beautiful Forest of Dean, and the Welsh capital of Cardiff, which is just under an hour away. Shops in Goodrich include an antique shop, gift shops, cafes and small restaurants can be found in the village. However, the main attraction for visitors to Goodrich must be its location on the River Wye.
Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities

There is a wide selection of riverside walks in the immediate area and indeed the celebrated Wye Valley Walk skirts the village. The quality of the salmon fishing on the river Wye is renowned the world over and is loved by anglers of all persuasions, and the river is appreciated by all including canoeists who can paddle for miles through magnificent scenery.
Castles and Forts

Many visitors come to Goodrich to visit the castle. Mostly built circa 1101, from 1326 it was the family seat of the Earl of Shrewsbury until the 16th century when it was claimed by the Earls of Kent. Today the castle's ruins stand on a mount just above the town, a fascinating place for anyone to visit, and the border location ensures that the whole landscape is rich in history and heritage.
