Chepstow makes an excellent base for a holiday or weekend break. Not just for itself in terms of a fascinating history, the dramatic Chepstow Castle and informative Chepstow museum, but also for easy access to idyllic walking around the Wye Valley, and for boat trips into the Severn via the old restored ferry.
Crammed with history, the town has been an important strategic port and market centre, aided by it’s location adjacent to the river. The Normans were the first to exploit Chepstow’s strategic position, they originally built the castle and the 13th century city wall or Port Wall.
Chepstow Racecourse first opened in 1926, an in 1948 it became the home of the Welsh Grand National after the closure of nearby Caerleon. Today this prestigious Welsh racecourse hosts a mix of Jump and Flat race meets throughout the year.
