Tintern Abbey, of course. Symonds Yat is popular. Goodrich castle english-heritage.org.uk/visit/… or maybe Chepstow Castle.

Must sees are always difficult as we probably all have different ones but some things I have enjoyed in the area:

Symmonds Yat (famous beauty spot, bird watching, walks from Yat Rock)

Goodrich Castle (English Heritage so ticket needed to enter)

Skenfrith and Grosmont Castles ( over the Welsh boarder but free entry)

Hereford cathedral and Mappa Mundi/chained library

Monmouth Museum

Walking on the Wye river path

Canoeing on the Wye

If you are book lovers Hay-on-Wye is worth a visit

Walking in the Forest of Dean

Kilpeck church

We stayed a few nights in Ross on Wye and I must say I was disappointed 😔 the shops were dated and I must of counted a dozen of people drinking high strength cans of lager in my short stay there !( I thought public drinking was illegal)..... the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and I’ll definitely return again but would probably stay in Monmouth, they have a Waitrose there ,they wouldn’t put one in ROSS!!....
