We were surprised how much there was to see here and how far you could just wander around. Terrific views along the river and good explanations of the features around the site. Thought we would be here for an hour and stayed 2.5! Plenty of...More

What a wonderful venue for a brilliant duo. The backing band was much better than I had thought they would be, having heard them on the radio... If you get the chance to hear/ see them, go for it! Also, Chepstow castle is a wonderful...More
