Perhaps best known as the birthplace of Henry V, Monmouth boasts a whole host of historical sites, people and buildings from the Nelson Garden to The Town Hall. It has a medieval 13th-century bridge over the river Monnow, unique in Britain as it is the only preserved bridge of its design remaining.

There are various walks in the area including the Kymin, a hill overlooking Monmouth with neo-classical monuments at the summit, built between 1794 and 1800.
