Plan a Great Day Out

Over Bridge is part of the National Cycle Network Route 42 which, when complete, will run from Gloucester through to Chepstow and Abergavenny.

Nearby Gloucester is home to the two friaries of Blackfriars and Greyfriars.

15 miles west from Over is Goodrich Castle, one of the finest and best preserved examples of an English medieval castle. With a lovely tearoom and stunning views of the Wye Valley, it's well worth a visit.
