A well preserved castle with the oldest surviving castle doors in Europe. Construction started in the 11th century with alterations happening throughout the centuries until the castle was made musket-friendly during the 17th century.
There are good exhibits throughout the castle and the Earls Chamber is well worth the visit. A gift shop is also housed inside the castle.
After a visit to the Castle, why not visit the nearest pub – aptly named the Chepstow Castle Inn on Bridge Street, where you will find a good selection of meals available for very reasonable prices.
