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!
