Please note that good footwear might be needed... More

Had a quick visit here this morning, interesting structure & grounds well kept / maintained. Only £6.50 entry & can comfortably view the whole castle in less than an hour.

I arrived at the castle after it had closed, so I had a walk around the castle walls which was nice.

Chepstow Castle is a rather big castle by the Welsh border. There are some nice views and there's quite a lot to explore. It was interesting. There's a big pay and display car park near the castle.

We spent about an hour walking around the castle and taking the views. Very pretty I'm sure it is prettier inside too!

Lovely day out at this castle in Chepstow. Beautiful location next to the river. The castle is very well kept!! The Car Parking was free on the Sunday! I would personally make it part of a two stop activity...encompass Tintern Abbey at the same time.
