Located on the Welsh borders and known simply as Ross until the official name change in 1931, Ross-on-Wye rises from the banks of the River Wye. This ancient but thriving market town has heaps to offer visitors,not just its history and charming surroundings. The unique shops are an added bonus.
A building recognized as Tudor House is one of the impressive black and white half-timbered houses in Ross-on-Wye. Another is the Man of Ross House where the town’s benefactor, John Kyrle, once lived. The Rudhall Almshouses, next to the church, are also Tudor-fronted.
A intriguing feature of historic Ross-on-Wye is a round Gothic-style tower set into what looks like ancient town walls in St Mary’s Street. Known locally at the present as the Gazebo Tower, it was actually built – along with the mock town walls – in 1833.
Ross-on-Wye is a welcoming place with much to offer its visitors.
