Welcome to Monmouthshire

Please check ahead before visiting as many venues will require booking or might not have opened yet. Please check the latest Welsh Government guidance here : https://gov.wales/coronavirus and plan your visit before setting off.

With more than 1,000 miles of public footpaths and two designated landscapes Monmouthshire has plenty of wide open space in stunning countryside to enjoy. From national trails to short circular walks in and around the Brecon Beacons National Park in the west, and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the east.

Just enter a town or postcode for a list of walks starting and finishing there.

Please support our independent local businesses while you’re here to ensure our communities benefit as much as possible from your visit – meet the families behind some of our Tintern businesses in our video below.

Look out for Ostin the Dormouse and Nerys the Dragon at the Old Station, Tintern and Caldicot Castle this month. You can find them between the pages of the new Explore and Create family activity packs which are full of ideas for exploring the sites. Collect Ostin and Nerys stamps and stickers for completed activities and try out our Dormouse and Dragon photo cut-out boards!

Make your promise to Wales before you visit and look out for the 'We're Good to Go' COVID-19 secure industry kitemark for assurance that the business is following government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid physical distancing.
