Wye Valley, Wales (Starting from Bath)
Chepstow sits at the southern end of the River Wye and the ruin of the Norman castle dominates the border town, guarding a strategic crossing point. The river forms the frontier between Wales and England. A little further north is Tintern Abbey, once a Cistercian monastery, but now a picturesque ruin. It is the best-preserved medieval abbey in Wales. Turner sketched and painted here, while Wordsworth drew inspiration from the surroundings. Monmouth boasts a unique medieval gatehouse on the 13thc Monnow Bridge. The castle was the birthplace of King Henry V, the victor of the battle of Agincourt, 1415, and there is also a Nelson Museum with an interesting collection about the life of the famous British admiral, the victor of the Battle of Trafalgar, 1805. The Kymin is a spectacular viewpoint to the east of Monmouth.
