Welsh Dragon

Welcome to Caldicot

Caldicot has always been an important transport point. It was on the Roman road from Gloucester to Caerleon, hence the growth of nearby Venta Silurum, the largest civilian settlement in Roman Wales. And these days, it’s the first town visitors see when they arrive in Wales via the Second Severn Crossing.

But don’t pass through; stop and take a closer look at town and country. Make sure you pay a visit to Caldicot Castle and Country Park. Just up the road pop into the hidden gardens and grottoes at Dewstow or see the fantastic Roman remains at Caerwent.
