The best castle in Wales.

No doubt about it. Ok, I am biased, as I live in Chepstow, but it is absolutely fabulous! Views down to the river Wye are stunning. I've taken friends and family over the years... read more

No doubt about it. Ok, I am biased, as I live in Chepstow, but it is absolutely fabulous! Views down to the river Wye are stunning. I've taken friends and family over the years, and they have all raved about what a beautiful castle it is and lovely location. In the summer, there are regularly open air plays performed (especially... More

We really enjoyed our castle visit. A great place to explore and made even better by the free entry in recognition of St David's Day.

Took advantage of free entry to Chepstow castle on St.David's day, although at £4.50 per adult I don't think the entrance fee is unreasonable. There is a nice gift shop as you enter with plenty for children and adults alike. We were given a map but mainly used the signs located around the castle which has plenty of information on... More

Chepstow Castle was an important part of our favorite day on a 10-day driving tour of England and Wales. We began the day at Chepstow, then went to Tintern Abbey, and then drove to Raglan Castle. This was all very doable, as we spent the amount of time we wanted to in each place, and we drove to the Cotswolds... More

We love this place it has a lot of charm and is very well looked after and even has some original stained glass still in the window frames. The car park charges were a bit much but we found that they take them off any items you buy from the gift shop which is very reasonable already. It is situated... More

Massive medieval castle on the cliffs overlooking the River Wye. Partly ruined, almost a thousand years old, ideal day out for history buffs or families. Has the oldest castle gates in Europe (dating to 1100 and something). What's not to like? (it's not Disney so it has not be fakely restored but has been preserved as-is)

A great day out a castle worth a visit friendly staff set in a perfect town. A very nice walk also available if you don't fancy visiting inside the castle plenty to see from the outside.

If you plan on seeing Tintern Abbey, you can easily squeeze in a visit to Chepstow Castle. It is about a 10 minute drive down the road and your visit can be done in about an hour. It isn't as informative as other sites in the UK. But you can definitely gain an appreciation of the history of British castles.... More
