Hay-On-Wye and the quest for prize winning books

Hay-on-Wye, the world’s first book town is a book lovers dream. Originally filled to the brim with a whopping 54 book shops, the number has now dwindled down to 26, with only about 15 currently open. There’s even a bookshop on the grounds of the castle!
