A short walk from the town centre with good views and a museum, All free to visit and nice area to walk around. Spent less than an hour there might have stayed longer at different time of year but it was just too cold and wintery!

The grounds around the castle are an impressive park, with a stroll down to the river, then head for the bridge and walk back into town, at the bottom of the high St there is a semi open / covered area full of small charming cafe'sleading to the upper section... 更多
The castle & museum are any easy walk from the town centre. The castle ruins are well story boarded, so you get an insight into what once stood. The museum was interesting & included an exhibition on the inception of Egyption writing from the British Museum. Also, some history of Abergavenny. We spent about an hour there on Saturday morning.... 更多
