Attractions, Activities & Things to do in Monmouthshire

You don't have to be fit to come here. And you certainly don't need to work up a sweat once you've arrived, although we've got more than 1,000 miles of public footpaths to walk! We guarantee once you see our countryside that you'll want to get outdoors.

Whether it's walking the Wales Coast Path solo, kayaking down the river Wye with your family or playing a round of golf as part of a team, there's no shortage of activities for you to try. Have a go at paddleboarding - one of the fastest-growing sports to hit the UK - or for the more adventurous, experience the thrill of soaring on thermal currents on a tandem paragliding flight off the Blorenge.

And if it's raining and you don't want to get wet, there are plenty of things to do under cover. Check out one of our museums in Abergavenny, Monmouth or Chepstow to hear the stories of these towns, or visit Shire Hall in Monmouth, where in Courtroom Number 1 in 1840 the three leaders of the Chartist movement - which sought political reform - were found guilty of treason and sentenced to death.
