Monmouth is a Welsh border market town best known as the birthplace of Henry V. The town has some amazing historical sites to busy yourself and the kids with if they are of an age to enjoy it.

Monmouth Town Centre
The town centre stretches along one main high street, wide in nature with a nice mix of high street and local small business stores. Step down a side street and find smaller local cafes, cobbled streets, and architecture full of character. Parking is available but gets’s very busy.


Monow Bridge & Gate
If you are in the town centre you can’t miss Monow bridge. it’s a 13th century stone gated bridge, one of only three of its kind left in Europe (something to tell your teachers on return home)

Shire Hall
Seriously gorgeous building right on the mains street in Monmouth. Tucked away inside you will find a museum to occupy you. Shire hall was built in the 16th century on the site of an Elizabethan market hall. The staff here are very knowledgeable and friendly. they also hold outdoor and evening markets here too.


Monmouth Sports Centre
If you need to head indoors for a few hours it’s worth checking out Monmouth sports centre where you can swim to your heart’s content. They also offer classes suitable for children outside of school time so do check their website for more details.

If you are heading to Monmouth with kids there is plenty to occupy your time. Pushchairs at the ready for the younger ones if you fancy a good walk. Eating drinking options are plentiful and suit all budgets and the scenery is beautiful so soak it all in while you walk around.
