Welcome to Monmouthshire, the Food Capital of Wales. Great food & drink aren’t the only reasons to come here though. Our characterful market towns are packed with history & culture. Discover the history of Chepstow & the Wye Valley at Chepstow Museum; learn about the infamous Christmas Day massacre at Abergavenny Museum & Castle, or find out about the close links between Monmouth and Admiral Nelson  at Monmouth Museum.

Experience the Georgian splendour of Monmouth Shire Hall followed by award-winning cake at Old Station in the beautiful village of Tintern. Top your day off with a walk around the Norman stronghold of Caldicot Castle & its extensive country park.

Or visit one of our leisure centres at Abergavenny, Caldicot, Chepstow & Monmouth each with its own swimming pool, sporting facilities, cafes & more.
