None that I can think of.
Not really for the young at heart but great for unplugging from this tormented world.

These lovely Gardens are situated behind the Church right next to the graveyard. It is relatively small but pefectly formed. Here you can sit amidst the floral displays and admire some spectacular views of the river wye as it winds its' way through the countryside. I particularly loved the elegantly carved doorways at the entrances to the park.more

I don´t know about special apart from it´s the only club in Ross. Here you can drink untill the outrage hour of 2pm.Wow. Don´t expect too much but if you really need to move your body till 2 then it´s just fine. Watch out for the drunks on the way down the street as you leave although they´re not generaly violent. Don´t be put off by the cctv on the street.
Opens at 9pm but no-one goes before 11pm.
Dress Code: None as far as I know, just don´t puke up on the gorilla as you enter!
Located about 5 minutes from the centre of town, this is an open air car park.

The Man of Ross pub is a great looking building dedicated to a local man named John Kyrle. He was a major benefactor of the town in the early days, he donated money for schooling, houses and planted many trees throughout the town.
We called into the 'Man of Ross' pub for a drink. It is a really warm and cosy place which has a nice looking separate dining area.
The House where John kyrle once lived is the attractive timber framed house opposite the old Market Hall in the Centre of Ross.
The River Wye is one of Britain's most scenic and unspoilt rivers
The earliest recorded reference to Ross-on-Wye was in a document from 1016 that was presented to the Bishop of Hereford; Ross is also mentioned in the Doomsday book as a village and manor belonging to the Bishop of Hereford. It also notes a priest and a mill, meaning that by this time Ross-on-Wye had grown into an established village with a church...more
