This attractive little town sits on the banks of the River Usk, one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the country and certainly the best in Monmouthshire. Stroll around the streets and you’ll find charm and history; old buildings, a rural life museum, picturesque churches, and during the spring and summer, some exquisite floral displays with several gardens throughout the town open to the public. There are quite a few independent shops, some rather quirky, and some good places to eat; if you like cafes try No. 49, for restaurants go to The Stuffed Tomato, and for pub grub the Nags Head.
Usk is well known for its Norman castle, set in the most beautiful and peaceful grounds on a hill above the town; whilst you’re here you must go and see it.
