A Chepstow hotel room puts you right in the middle of a historic Welsh town, noted for its famous castle. Chepstow Castle was built in 1067, a year after William the Conqueror took the English throne; William had the castle constructed as a headquarters for his expeditions into Wales. You can tour the grounds and buildings at Chepstow Castle, featuring many modern exhibits and displays detailing the structure’s history.
A walking tour of this city is an absolute must––make sure to take the dell by Chepstow Castle, where you can hail a taxi to Tintern Abbey. William Wordsworth wrote a famous poem about this historic site, founded by Walter de Clare in 1131. History buffs and those who appreciate English literature alike will not want to miss these inspirational ruins, located only a few miles from your hotel in Chepstow.
When it’s time to eat during your stay in our Chepstow accommodations, wander over to The Piercefield, a pub and diner close to the Chepstow racecourse. Enjoy a lamb steak, fish n’ chips, or a chicken, ham, and leek pie––wash it all down with a beloved Welsh lager or ale, brewed in Wales for over 1,500 years.
