Beautifully preserved Chepstow Castle stretches out along a limestone cliff above the River Wye like a history lesson in stone. There’s no better place in Britain to see how castles gradually evolved to cope with ever more destructive weaponry – and the grandiose ambitions of their owners. For more than six centuries Chepstow was home to some of the wealthiest and most powerful men of the medieval and Tudor ages. The displayed opening times are our general pattern. Please check the Cadw website for specific times and days, including closures.

We walked from Chepstow to St. James's Church at Lancaut along Offa's Dyke. Beautiful Spring day & the path passed through fields of dandelions & buttercups, under beech, oak, hazel & some resurgent elm. Above an old quarry, the flanks covered in Hart's Tongue fern. Climber's practising their art on the cliff wall's. Passed some characterful houses, among them Pen Moel, a sprawling Victorian giant of a place & Spital Meend, a classy mansion built of stone, half hidden among trees.

This bridge carries the old road between England/Wales, from Gloucestershire to Monmouthshire over the River Wye and has the border right in the middle. Like some places on the equator you can straddle two countries. If you are on one side of the bridge you can take a picture of this with Chepstow Castle in the background. Also marvel at the massive tide range here, the same rise and fall of the River Severn, and at certain times you;ll see the River Wye "flow the other way" when the tide comes in. The eddys and whirlpools under the bridge are quite hypnotic. You may also see a seal from her as they hunt for salmon. The elegant cast iron bridge is unique with its five spans and celebrated its bicentenary recently.

Chepstow Museum is a museum of local history. On the ground floor we have four main exhibition rooms as well a gift shop. On the first floor are two further exhibition rooms. We have photographs of the first floor exhibits available to view from the front desk if you are unable to use the stairs. We have a ramped entrance for wheelchair access to the ground floor but no lift to the first floor.
