When it comes to recreation and sports, you will not be left wanting. The town enjoys a wide variety of recreational activities, ranging from musical, artistic and dramatic societies to salmon fishing on the Usk and nearby Wye rivers, known to be some of the best in Wales. Golfers have three
challenging courses from which to choose, and nearby you will find horse riding, mountain biking, rowing and canoeing.
History buffs, once familiar with the town’s own Market Hall and castle ruins, can venture out a short way to discover Big Pit – the national mining museum in nearby Blaenavon, or the restored Brecon and Monmouthshire canal system.
Abergavenny is a walkers’ paradise, with much to explore on foot and a myriad of guided walks to help you get to know your new home town. For the hardier, you can explore the three mountains overlooking the town opening to the Brecon Beacons that forms the northern boundary.
