Join a tour with our expert guide. Find out more about the castle's fascinating history and architecture, and take a walk around to learn more about this beautifully preserved monument.
The whole of Chepstow Castle is a lesson in longevity. From around 1067 through to 1690, the castle, almost chameleon-like, changed its appearance as fashions changed in military architecture.
Century after century, the castle grew and grew along its narrow cliff top ridge. 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!
