Chepstow Castle


Chepstow Castle

Open
Daily 9.30am - 5.00pm Last admission 30 minutes before closing

Beautifully preserved Chepstow Castle is a history lesson in stone. From around 1067 through to 1690, the castle, almost chameleon-like, changed its appearance as fashions changed in military architecture. If you think modern doors are long lasting, think again. Chepstow boasts the oldest castle doors in Europe. All wood and all of 800 years old. The oldest building is the Norman great tower but building work continued well into the 17th-century as medieval battlements were replaced by stronger musket-friendly parapets. Bows and arrows were so last century!
