“A must see Welsh castle”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Fabulous views from the ramparts and a great insight into how the Norman's conquered the Welsh coastal plains with the building of these imposingly located castles.

“A proper castle :-)”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Well worth the visit - a really impressive castle in spectacular location overlooking the river and town. A great way to spend a few hours poking around the nooks and crannies. The medieval doors on display are fantastic.

“The highlight of Chepstow”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The best feature of Chepstow and worth a visit. Great views if the Wye and surroundings. The castle also looks impressive from the outside and imposes itself on this town. We liked the opportunity to try archery when we visited!
