Top 100 Attractions Review

If Abergavenny and its surrounding areas are fantastically steeped in history and atmospherically fantastic! As far as small towns go this one, simply has it all. It has charm, character, and with it only being positioned 6 miles from the border between England and Wales, you can easily see why it gets tens of thousands of visitors every year. Medieval Abergavenny is a little town with a big personality. What I like so much about the castle and museum is it to shares that same personality. So no matter whatever the weather, you can be rest assured there is something for everyone here no matter what age. In short, I think a trip to both the castle and museum should be on everybody's to do list.

Abergavenny Museum

Attraction

Abergavenny MuseumAbergavenny Museum

Abergavenny Museum is set in the grounds of a ‘ruined' Norman Castle, where you can enjoy a picnic during the summer and spectacular views on colder days. The collections are of local significance, with particular emphasis on costume, rural life, agriculture, domestic and working life.

We have six display areas. The Keep Gallery which tells the History of Abergavenny from Prehistory to the present day. A World War II Air Raid Shelter, Saddlers Shop, Welsh Kitchen and Basil Jones' Grocery Shop. Our temporary exhibitions which change three or four times per year, take place in our recently refurbished gallery.

You can discover more about the castle using our family backpacks, which are free to use. In addition we run a program of events and educational activities to suit all interests. Please visit our website for up to date details. ‘Follow' us on Twitter and ‘Like' us on Facebook.
