Abergavenny Museum and Abergavenny Castle

Enjoy a day out visiting two attractions in one. Abergavenny Museum is set in the grounds of a 'ruined' Norman castle, where you can enjoy a picnic during the summer and a brisk walk on colder days.

Although the original castle is now largely in ruins there is still a tall stretch of curtain wall to the right of what would have been the gatehouse, originally from the 12th Century.

The museum is housed in a former 19th Century hunting lodge built by the Marquess of Abergavenny within the walls of the castle. The museum has five permanent displays which tell the story of this historic market town from prehistory through to the
present day.
