Chepstow Castle is larger than we realised so my first recommendation would be comfy shoes! A very well preserved Castle with lots of information about each part. It would benefit from being visited on a fine day to fully appreciate it. Staff were friendly, no...More

Visit the first Norman castle to be built after the Norman CONQUEST. The castle is located in a beautiful setting on the banks of the river Wye. In the summer there are a variety of wonderful activities from rock festivals, children's entertainment and open air...More

This is a wonderful castle - glorious towers and don’t miss the oldest surviving castle door in Europe! Great to spend a couple of hours exploring - try not to rush it, give yourself plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the views...More

Took our teenage daughter and toddler here. Both had a really good day. Massive grounds to explore and enjoy. Beautiful old architecture, plenty of photo opportunities and stunning views from the castle. You can feel the history all around you.... It's well worth entrance fee.

First visit in many years. A bigger than average castle in good condition with good views over the Wye and Chepstow. Cheaper than Goodrich but not quite as informative. A must visit place if you are in or around the Wye Valley.

This sloping castle is well signed to let you know what room you're standing in, and who helped to build it. Right on the rivers edge, and in the middle of a quaint town. This is a fun place to see the architectural differences between...More

We loved it. Have visited many castles but this was one of the best. So much of the structure is still there and we took well over an hour to go through it all. Worth the entrance fee.

A wonderful setting - right on the River Wye, which gives wonderful views the higher you climb. We parked in the car park next door, which was really handy and cheap - just £2 for 4 hours parking. The lady on the desk was friendly...More
