Abergavenny Castle & Museum, Monmouthshire
Abergavenny Castle & Museum is house in a former hunting lodge within the grounds of a ruined Norman castle house, all rather charming as you can imagine. In the museum various displays tell the history of Abergavenny to the present day, which is actually quite fascinating if you take the time to read it all. You can also see a World War II Air Raid Shelter, a Welsh Kitchen and Basil Jones’ Grocery Shop, just as it would have been, back in the day. There's a wonderful costume collection and a number of Roman artefacts that were found at various sites nearby, and of course, the obligatory 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, spread out the rug and enjoy a picnic.
