Welcome to Abergavenny

Called Gobannium by the Romans and Y Fenni by Welsh speakers (after one of the brooks running through the town), this market town is the perfect base for the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Blaenavon World Heritage Site. It's surrounded by seven mountains - a bit like Rome. Its status as a foodie Mecca is well established with its annual autumn Abergavenny Food Festival a staple on the culinary calendar. And its regular food and craft markets attract the best artisan producers from across the region. Its main attractions include Abergavenny Castle & Museum, St Mary's Priory church, Tithe Barn, market hall and castle meadows.

Loads to look out for including some fabulous independent shops in the town centre such as Alison Tod Milliner, Cooks' Galley, Gateway Cycles, Love Lily, The Art Shop, The Wool Croft and two superb butchers, Powells and Rawlings.
