Frequently Asked Questions
I am visiting Hay-on-Wye on a weekend or Bank Holiday, are the shops open?
You'll find that most shops in Hay are open, yes !
I would like to visit Hay during the Xmas period. Will the Bookshops be open?
Generally you will find most Bookshops closed on Xmas day (25th Dec), the Bank Holiday (26th Dec), and New Year's day (1st Jan). You may find some Bookshops open on Bank Holiday, but if in doubt, phone ahead first to confirm.
I would like to visit Hay over the Xmas period - will there be a Thursday market?
The Thursday Market is open over the Christmas and New Year period. The New Year Market may be a reduced market, with more of a focus on crafts and flea traders. If either Christmas or New Year falls on a Thursday, it changes to a different day, but you'll find it still running!
