The oldest castle in Wales ( I think ! ). One of a line of castles built for the Marcher Lords on the Welsh/English border.

History can be so complicated, but it needs to kept simple if it's to have any relevance. And if you want to find an example of how that works, then visit the delightful Chepstow Castle, snuggled up beside the River Wye in south Monmouthshire.

If you are in Chepstow, it is worth visiting the castle. with a very unique style and design it languishes with depths of history. The castle has a very unique surroundings with a river flowing down one side of it and mounted high on a sheer drop makes its build quite unique.

I was intrigued that this Castle sits on the border between England and Wales. Stopped in on our way out of Wales but was able to see most of the grounds and walk around town. Had nice views with the river next to it.
