Thornbury Arts Festival: Chepstow Guided Walk

Thornbury Arts Festival’s popular guided walk, with two groups to be taken around “hidden Chepstow”, ending with a visit to the Severn Princess ferry, which used to cross the river before the Severn Bridge opened in 1966.

Discover the fascinating history of the border town and ancient port of Chepstow in this walk organised with the help of the Chepstow Society.

The town is known for its Norman castle, which is set spectacularly on cliffs above the River Wye and was the first stone built castle in Wales, if not the whole country.

Chepstow grew and prospered as a market centre for the farming community, with a busy port and shipyards adding to its importance in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

The walk will start in the car park beside the castle, taking a circular route down to the Wye bridge, along the riverbank to the old shipbuilding area, then up through the town.

The walk will also incorporate the Priory Church of St Mary, almshouses, the town gate and many other intriguing buildings.

Lasting for about two hours, the walk will be followed by refreshments at Tiffin, a local tea shop.

Tickets £9 - click below to buy yours.
