Really enjoyable visit with my husband and dog. Really nice that they are dog-friendly. We enjoyed walking around and looking at the ruins and reading the information signs. We also liked the dragons that were there.

Lovely visit, this is our second time and it was as beautiful as we remembered and well worth a second visit. Friendly staff and plenty of rest stops and benches, ideal for a picnic as there are breathtaking views

The mom and two baby dragons are visiting the castle. Castle is very well kept and great for just wandering around.

Yes there are lots of good picnic locations. There is some parking right outside but plenty in the town as a whole. I would advise parking in or opposite Tesco where it is free.

Not worth answering that question really is it? You could just of easily spent 30 seconds checking the info on the Chepstow Castle website rather than wasting your time and anyone elses on here. Der!
