Abergavenny Castle & Museum, Monmouthshire
Within the grounds of the ruins of this Norman castle house is the town museum housed in a former hunting lodge and telling the history of Abergavenny to the present day. Amongst other displays see the World War II Air Raid Shelter, the Welsh Kitchen and Basil Jones’ Grocery Shop; admire the wonderful costume collection and have a look at the Roman artefacts that were found nearby.
There’s a little shop selling souvenirs, books and dressing up clothes; families can pick up a Castle Explorers Backpack to help them discover more at the museum, plus they'll have fun playing the historic games and trying pieces of costume on.
Admission to the museum is free; whilst you’re there have a stroll in the grounds, or if the weather is good, have a picnic.
