A fascinating and interesting peek into the past. The castle is beautifully set on the side of the River Wye and during the summer months plays to any number of concerts, plays and events in a wonderful setting. If you are staying a while in Wales it could well be worth your while to join CADW. (Welsh Heritage). It would... More

This is another very large castle with great views. The grounds are well kept, while we were there admiring this piece of history, three local boys rode their bikes up the grass and dropped down in the shade, obviously not as impressed as we were, ha ha. Really nice place to see.

A lovely castle however not really wheelchair friendly .... Maybe parts of the castle are not wheelchair accessible. The rest is hard work unless you have an electric wheelchair :/ wouldn't go again. The town is also hard work if in a wheelchair..

We chose this castle as it seems the most impressive of the south wales castles in CADW. Very pleasant views. A very warm day so good that it was high and there was a breeze. Part of the castle was shut for maintenance which we knew in advance - tip to CADW - you could provide a guide as to... More

Chepstow Castle has been a part of my life for over 30 years. It is a massive and imposing structure that dominates the skyline as you drive down Castleford Hill towards the River Wye. If you are doing this at dusk and the lights are on, look for the hanged man in one of the windows! Drive around Chepstow, and... More

We loved this castle. Lots to see and lots of history - it helped we had the guide book but signposting has lots of information too. Great if you like climbing up towers and ramparts. Worth looking to see if they have any spacial events on in evenings - music and plays. Chepstow itself was lovely - generally quite quiet... More

We have recently spent a week on holiday in South Wales and visited a number of castles. This was one of the best we explored. Free to English Heritage members. Excellent value for money and plenty to explore. Lovely views all around and often used for open air concerts and plays. Well stocked gift shop and you can park right... More

I never tire of going to Chepstow Castle, either to walk around outside the grounds or take visitors to see inside the castle grounds. I'm so proud to live in a town with a castle that is almost 1,000 years old! Views from the grounds are breathtakingly beautiful. Over the summer months there are many activities taking place - open... More
