Welcome to Winter in Monmouthshire

Welcome to Monmouthshire at one of the most beautiful times of year. In the lead up to Christmas we're focusing on our market towns, each with their own distinct character, and on the wide range of high quality locally produced food, drink and gifts. The first of our Christmas blogs focuses on Abergavenny. From canalside walks to afternoon tea, Abergavenny is a fantastic place to visit. We've festive dining and high tea, an award-winning market full of fresh local produce, freshly baked speciality breads and pastries from a new larger Angel Bakery, beautiful new Christmas light displays and some fantastic walks, taking in the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, the Brecon Beacons, Sugarloaf and more.

Browse our Christmas food & drink and gift guide and treat your loved ones (or yourself!) to award-winning wine, beer, gin, mead & cider. Enjoy organic farm produce, luxury Christmas hampers or a delicious seasoning gift box. Or maybe plan ahead with gift vouchers for afternoon tea, jam making, vineyard tours and bespoke perfume creation experiences. So whether or not you can visit us this Christmas, you can still enjoy a little bit of Monmouthshire and the Wye Valley under your tree. 

Walking is good for our physical and mental wellbeing at any time of year but especially so at the moment. Our walking route search function helps you find short and circular walking routes starting / finishing at specific locations across the area. Just enter a town or postcode for a list of walks starting and finishing there. A wider selection of walks including longer circular & linear walks can be found on our walking page.

Many of the businesses featured on our updated takeaway food and drink and local delivery services in Monmouthshire also offer delivery across the UK so you can enjoy the flavours of Monmouthshire wherever you live.
