Welcome to Monmouth

Monmouth is a town that looks forward as well as back. And its events programme is a particular draw, with the Monmouth Festival, one of Europe’s largest free music festivals, and the Monmouthshire Show, the largest one-day show in Wales.

Nestling in the tranquil lower reaches of the beautiful Wye Valley, a centre for tourism since 1780, Monmouth is well known for its iconic 13th century gatehouse bridge . It has a famous past with its connections to Henry V, Geoffrey of Monmouth and more recently Queen, Simple Minds and Monmouthpedia. Renowned for its independent retail sector, with restaurants to suit all tastes, it is also the place for a coffee in a café in a quiet courtyard.
