Chepstow Castle is so much bigger than when you walk through the main entrance. It extends a long way back along the entrance to the Wye river. There's lots of nooks and crannies to explore and children will love the extent of the castle. Lots...More

I was unprepared for how big this castle is once you get inside as it really doesn't look it from outside. There's lots of twists and turns and interesting nooks and crannies to see. We spent longer than we expected on our visit there as...More

I have membership through work to Cadw so visited here and Tintern. They were both great places for a little explore and still reasonable at £6 odd if not a member. Scenery is beautiful when looking from the top of the remains. Well worth a...More

When we visited a re-enactment group were giving a living history display. Medieval cooking, archery, swordpplay and the chance to dress up with chain mail, helmets, sheilds and swords (or weapon of your choice). Well preserved considering it is so old. Good explanation boards.

We were lucky to come here with our 6 year old and 4 year old on a day when Bowlore (Medieval reenactment group) were doing a demonstration day so the castle, which is a great place to visit anyway, really came alive. It is a...More

It was a cloudy day but we spent a good Hour/hour and half exploring these ruins. It was the rain that sent us away as there is no shelter and ,although the paths are safe and wheelchair friendly, the stones and grassy slopes were slippery...More

We visited on a particularly grey day but could still imagine that the views from the castle over the river and rolling hills would be exceptional in sunshine. Castle itself is impressive although undergoing some work.

The outside it's actually impressive and nice but the inside is just ruins and probably not worth it. If you want to see fascinating ruins go to Tintern Abbey.

Wonderful visit. Enjoyed all aspects of this visit. The doors, stone work and design of the castle are so unique. Lovely views.

Not worth answering that question really is it? You could just of easily spent 30 seconds checking the info on the Chepstow Castle website rather than wasting your time and anyone elses on here. Der!
Good afternoon JonoJonesy, before I start I feel slightly miffed that I missed Bad Manners as they are one of my favourite bands from the 80's. (We also missed Goldie looking chain last night Grrrrr....) I'm going there tonight to see Bellowhead and was wondering if you could give us any tips or tricks? (where best to stand etc plus the price of a pint and so forth). Many thanks
