Welcome to Usk

Usk has many strings to its bow. It sits on one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the country, the River Usk. Its 11th century castle is the backdrop for an enchanting, romantic garden.

A regular winner of Wales in Bloom, it hosts a colourful Open Gardens weekend in June and a county show in September, has a castle, a rural life museum, and a Town Trail which includes 28 sites of historic interest, each with a Blue Plaque, all in this small picturesque town.
