Trains to Chepstow

Chepstow station is about five minutes' walk from the town centre with its mix of independent and high street shops, cafes and pubs. It's only a few minutes further on to the impressive Chepstow Castle, which stands high above the River Wye marking the Welsh-English border. Construction on the castle started in 1067, making it the oldest surviving non-religious stone building in Britain. Chepstow racecourse is about 1.5 miles away, and on race days, shuttle buses take race goers to and from the station. Chepstow is also the nearest train station for setting off to explore the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where there are many opportunities for water sports, climbing, caving, walking and visiting heritage sites such as Tintern Abbey. The famous Offa’s Dyke Path begins here (or ends here, depending on which way you're walking it) and stretches 177 miles all the way along the 8th-century border between England and Wales.
