Like many Welsh towns, Chepstow is probably best known for its castle. The castle is post-Roman, with construction beginning in 1067, and is open to the public for tours and picnics in its grounds. The town is also home to the Chepstow Racecourse, where there are regular races as well as wedding and conference facilities available to hire for your business event or special day.
Chepstow is located on the border of Wales, into Gloucestershire in England. The Severn Bridge offers travel between the two. The River Severn and the River Wye pass by the town, and the annual Two Rivers Folk Festival is named after them. Other events in Chepstow include the Waltz on the Wye, with a formal ball, activities and family fun. It’s a Steampunk festival and represents the Steampunk way of life, which means that festival-goers dress in Victorian fashions often combined with elements of sci-fi. The idea is to merge the Victorian era with the modern day, imagining that Victorian ideas of the future really played out and that modern Britain could be, as the name suggests, powered by steam. Whether you want to get involved in the unique atmosphere of the Welsh Steampunk festival, attend the Two Rivers Folk Festival or enjoy a day at the races or an afternoon at the castle, you can book Chepstow accommodation online today.
