Wales Travel - Book Festival in Hay-on-Wye

Just over three hours by road from London exist one of the most incredible literary festivals on the planet. At the end of May every year since 1988, thousands of bibliophiles converge on this small hamlet to meet authors, listen to readings, and of course purchase books. This year the festival runs from May 26 through June 4. There are over three dozen used book stores, lots of character and only one hotel in town where over 80,000 people are expected. http://www.hayfestival.com/
