Leisure in Monmouth

Leisure in Monmouth

Monmouthshire, on the border of Wales, is a beautiful and varied area which attracts walkers from all over Europe. A land boasting truly magnificent scenery and a wealth of historic treasures - jewels such as world famous Tintern Abbey and the time-ravaged castles of the Welsh borderlands.

Wales and England meet here. 'Croeso i Gymru' means 'Welcome to Wales' - a greeting you'll see on road signs as you approach from England. A mixture of both Welsh and English influences are also evident in the historic towns of Chepstow, Monmouth, Abergavenny, Usk, Caldicot, and Newport (Wales's 'newest' city).

The Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Brecon Beacons National Park are protected, special areas of countryside with unique, stunning landscapes. They offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits - walking, fishing, canal-cruising, golf, cycling, canoeing, gliding.

We have tried to list as many leisure activities as we can in order to provide a wide varierty of things to do in the area.

If you host an activity and would like it listed on the site please contact us.
