Camping in Abergavenny

Abergavenny is located 15 miles west of Monmouth on the A40 and A465 roads, 6 miles from the English border within the Welsh Marches.

Situated at the confluence of a tributary stream, the Gavenny, and the River Usk, it is almost surrounded by two mountains – the Blorenge (559 m) and the Sugar Loaf (596 m) – and five hills: Skirrid Fawr, Ysgyryd Fach (Skirrid Fach), Deri, Rholben and Mynydd Llanwenarth, known locally as "Llanwenarth Breast".

The town is situated just south of the Black Mountains, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Offa's Dyke Path long distance footpath passes close by and the Marches Way, The Beacons Way and Usk Valley Walk all pass through the town.

A sign on the Town Hall gives Abergavenny the title "Gateway to Wales". Formerly a medieval walled town, it was originally a Roman fort, Gobannium. It contains the remains of a medieval stone castle built soon after the Norman Conquest.
