Visiting Monmouth

Visiting Monmouth

Set in the heart of the Wye Valley, officially designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Monmouth's Roman and Medieval beginnings, Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards provide the perfect backdrop for the day visitor or those seeking a longer break.

Throw in the impressively large village green and the chance to walk, climb and paddle your way around the surrounding hills and the rivers Wye and Monnow and you've got the makings of the complete break from the rigours of city life in a small country town with a big country attitude.

As a town for all seasons, our markets and shops throb with life during the day. During the evening, the towns' pubs, clubs and halls tap to the beat of a huge variety of social events.
Monmouth's location makes it the perfect centre for touring, sight-seeing and sampling the activities and attractions of the nearby villages, towns and cities.
