Monmouth

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Wye Valley, the historic border town of Monmouth is at the confluence of the rivers Wye, Trothy and Morrow, with breath-taking views over the Wye Valley and a bustling town centre filled with shops and eateries.

With its elegant Georgian architecture and prime position on the banks of the River Wye, Monmouth exudes an aura of charm and tranquillity, even though the town can often be quite busy. The centre of Monmouth is a hive of activity, with traditional shops and cafes lining narrow streets and quaint courtyards. The buildings are mainly Georgian in style, but a number of original structures from the Tudor period still remain.

Monmouth’s rich history can be explored by visiting the Nelson Museum and the ruins of Monmouth Castle, where the future King Henry V was born in 1387.

No visit to Monmouth is complete without taking in the glorious natural scenery that surrounds the town. Some of the most spectacular views are available from atop Kymin Hill. The scenic splendour of the Wye Valley, with its lush green rolling landscape, is a sight not to be missed. When you can tear yourself away from the countryside panorama, be sure to take a look inside both the 18th century Round House, which is perched on top of the hill, and the tiny Naval Temple, once visited by Lord Nelson himself.

If you visit in July don’t miss the annual Monmouth Festival, starting on the last Friday of the month, this free nine day festival is a feast of music. Also in August try to catch the Monmouth Show, the largest one-day show in Wales, held on the last Thursday in August.
