Abergavenny Castle

Built during the 12th century with additions built during the 13th and 14th century, today the castle stands in a pretty ruined state. Of the remains an almost full height curtain wall stands to the right of the main gate house.

Located inside the castle is Abergavenny Museum which houses a collection of prehistoric, bronze age and iron age artefacts amonst others. There is also a shop which stocks a range of gifts as well as ice creams and drinks.

For a pub lunch, we can recommend The Grofield on Baker Street – if the sun is shining, head for their beer garden at the rear.
