"Nestled amid seven hills and only six miles from the English border, the town is often referred to as "the Gateway to Wales." A fort was built here during the Roman occupation of Britain, which gave way to a castle and walled town soon after the Norman Conquest of 1066 (the imposing castle remains.) Today, Abergavenny is a colorful market town with high-end specialty shops and top-notch restaurants, showcasing the town's obsession with food (it hosts an acclaimed food festival every September.) To sample some of that food, book a table at the Oak Room in the Angel Hotel in the town center, or its sister property, the Michelin-starred Walnut Tree, two miles from town".
