Chepstow

Details

The walled old town is simply a joy to amble around; there are a wealth of independent shops and a weekly Local Producers Market that is regarded by the culinary community as one of the finest in Britain. Walkers are spoilt for choice as in addition to numerous trails and paths that delve into the leafy Wye Valley, Chepstow is also linked to Offa’s Dyke. The Forest of Dean is close at hand, whilst those interested in the rich history of this turbulent region will savour a trip to Tintern Abbey and the Chepstow Museum.

Chepstow is also home to a number of festivals and annual events, including the eponymous Chepstow Festival, Hoggin’ the Bridge and of course the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow Racecourse. As you might expect there is a plethora of accommodation, much of it of an excellent standard, that will serve to make your stay in Chepstow truly memorable. Chepstow station is on the Newport to Gloucester & Cheltenham line.

HISTORY & CULTURE
The historic market town of Chepstow has been attracting tourists since the end of the 18th century. These early tourists were attracted by the picturesque views of Chepstow Castle that could be leisurely surveyed from the Wye River, or more intimately explored on foot within the medieval town walls.

The strategic location of Chepstow has ensured that there has been a settlement here long before William FitzOsbern built Chepstow Castle in 1067. Since then however, the prosperous market town has thrived, firstly from the export via the town's port of wine and timber from the Forest of Dean and latterly from the abundance of visitors who have been charmed by this quaint border town.
