Free Entry to Cadw sites across Monmouthshire for St. David's Day

Celebrate St David's Day in Monmouthshire on Friday 1st March with free entry to all of Cadw's sites - Chepstow Castle, Raglan Castle & Tintern Abbey. There's no booking required and they're all close enough to visit in a day (sites are open 10am - 4pm).

If that's not enough, there's also a host of Cadw sites that are always free to visit, including the Marcher castles of Grosmont, Skenfrith & White Castle and the 2000 year old Roman town of Caerwent.

Perfect timing for half term!

Chepstow Castle

Chepstow Castle (Cadw)

Beautifully preserved Chepstow Castle stretches out along a limestone cliff above the River Wye like a history lesson in stone.

Tintern Abbey

Tintern Abbey (Cadw)

Tintern Abbey is a national icon – still standing in roofless splendour on the banks of the River Wye nearly 500 years since its tragic fall from grace.

Raglan Castle

Raglan Castle (Cadw)

The unmistakable silhouette of Raglan crowning a ridge amid glorious countryside is the grandest castle ever built by Welshmen.
