Attractions near Monmouth
Nelson Museum & Local History Centre (< 1 Mile)*

The Great Western Railway Museum is housed in one of the last remaining permanent railway buildings in the Forest of Dean, on the original site of Coleford Railway Yard. It is the original GWR Goods Station of 1883.
Goodrich Castle (5 Miles)*
Goodrich Castle is the most complete medieval castle in Britain, despite its turbulent history. Built on a rocky outcrop with exhilarating views over the Wye Valley, it gives a fascinating insight into fortress life seven centuries ago.
Clearwell Caves Ancient Iron Mines (5 Miles)*
When you visit Clearwell Caves you are entering some of the very oldest underground workings in Britain.
Raglan Castle (6 Miles)*
Handsome Raglan, set amongst green, rolling border country, marks the end of an auspicious line. Largely the creation of the more peaceful, later Middle Ages, it brings to a close the great castle-building episode in Welsh history.
Tintern Abbey (8 Miles)*
It's easy to understand why Tintern Abbey was one of the first places in Wales to attract Visitors. Travellers have been flocking to this riverbank in the wooded Wye Valley for hundreds of years to admire Tintern's grace and sublime beauty.
White Castle (8 Miles)*
This little-known historical gem is located deep in Wales's border country, today a tranquil landscape but in medieval times hotly disputed territory. Along with Skenfrith and Grosmont, White Castle was one of a triangle of fortresses.
