The Wales Coast Path

The Wales Coast Path has made it easier than ever to explore Wales' wonderful coastline. Here in Monmouthshire, you can enjoy the trail in short sections or walk the whole 14 mile (22km) length from Chepstow to Magor. It's mostly level going, other than a few steeper parts in Chepstow.

Along your way you'll pass medieval castles, renowned golf courses, fantastic star gazing spots, great views over the channel and an ecological haven

2018 is Wales' Year of the Sea, so it's the perfect time to get out and discover our coastline.
