Nelson Museum & Local History Centre (5 Miles)*

Shipley Gardens surround a 17th Century Wye Valley homestead standing upon the site of previous dwellings that since Roman times have administered the adjacent ford and former ferry.
White Castle (10 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.
International Centre for Birds of Prey (10 Miles)*
Once more under the direction of Jemima Parry-Jones, the Centre has undergone a substantial facelift and everything has been upgraded. Please come to visit.
Raglan Castle (11 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.
