Monmouth tourist guide
Monmouth is a 'graceful' town wonderfully located where three rivers meet, the lesser-known Trothy and Monnow and the more famous Wye. The unique Monnow Bridge, at the west end of town, with its world-famous 13th Century gateway and uniqueness is probable one of the most photographed rural bridge in Britain.
Famed for some rather well-known sons - King Henry V was born at Monmouth Castle in 1387 and Sir Charles Rolls, one half of the luxury eponymous car-maker enjoyed his formative years at the Hendre Estate (now a fabulous golf course) near the town.
Monmouth is also famous for its stunning mixture of Tudor buildings and Georgian architecture, together with its beautiful town square.
Off the town square you'll find an entire panoply of retailers, from local family-own and run individual businesses, attractive eating areas and hidden courtyards to some of the famous high-street names. The annual summer Monmouth Festival is very worthwhile being in town for! The Nelson Museum, with an incredible collection of Lord Nelson memorabilia - including his glass eye, letters to Lady Hamilton and his sword - can also be found in the town.
