Ancient Monmouth is a traditional county town, with shops, restaurants, and cafés – it has some elegant Georgian buildings, notably the beautiful Shire Hall.
The town has existed since Roman times, gaining importance in the medieval period, when it gained its 12th-century castle, perhaps best known as the birthplace of Henry V.
Monmouth boasts a whole host of historical sites, famous people and buildings, from the Nelson Gardens to the town hall.
It has a medieval 13th-century bridge over the River Monnow, unique in Britain, as it is the only preserved bridge of its design remaining.
The Kymin is a wooded hill with wonderful views over the Welsh countryside. On the hilltop is the Georgian Naval Temple, commemorating the victories of the British Navy.
The surrounding countryside of the Wye Valley is also rich in history.
To the west are the stunning remains of magnificent Raglan Castle, while to the north is the even older ruin of Skenfrith Castle.
Going south will take you to the splendid medieval Tintern Abbey – a highlight of any trip to Wales.
Offa’s Dyke is a beautiful 136-mile (218km) trail following the river valley from Chepstow in Monmouthshire to the slopes of Plynlimon in Powys, criss-crossing the border between England and Wales.
