Three Choirs Way – 100 miles, 10 days. The Three Choirs Way provides a long distance footpath between Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester, with a theme linking the walk and the Music Festival celebrated at the three Cathedrals for over 300 years. Each year one of the three Cathedrals takes it in turn to host the festival. The Three Choirs Festival arose, partly, from the close proximity of the three cities which has resulted in close cultural ties between them. The Three Choirs Way serves to strengthen and promote those links, by providing a glorious walk of 100 miles through the attractive and varied countryside of the three counties, evoked in the old adage ‘blessed is the eye between Severn and Wye’.
