  • I have visited many castles and Chepstow is up there with the best. The location on a cliff above the river is special and that also leads to an unusual linear form for the castle. The story of those ...  more »

  • We very much enjoyed visiting Chepstow Castle and the quaint village surrounding it. The castle is well enough intact to visualize the grandeur it once must have commanded. The original doors have been preserved and are believed to be the oldest existing castle doors in Great Britain. The staff were friendly and the gift shop was well stocked. I recommend purchasing a pass that gives entrance into all Welsh castles. It costs a bit more up front but saves in the long run.
  • Great piece of history. Came here on our pushbikes but didn’t go inside. You have to pay to get in. There is plenty of parking here for visitors who come by car. It’s at the bottom of a massive hill so can be challenging cycling back up! Loads of restaurants and shops around the castle
  • Really impressed! We took our 5 year old and he enjoyed exploring everywhere. Some great views looking across Chepstow and the river Severn. Well worth a visit
  • We had a fantastic family day. The ladies in the gift shop were lovely very welcoming and great with the kids. The castle is amazing I would highly recommend a day out here, also once you have paid you are able to go in and out as you please.
  • I love this castle, so spread out, scenic and loads to explore. I found information a bit lacking but loved our wander. Friendly staff welcomed us in
