Half Term in Monmouthshire

Half term (and a bank holiday!) is upon us again and the weather is looking good here in Monmouthshire. We have lots of great places to visit from castles to museums, over 70 circular walks around the county, plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy and even a few events! 

We've also put together some lists of our top ideas for what to do this week.
