The Art Shop in Abergavenny

Art & Craft

Many artists base themselves in this inspirational area and there are several craft centres and galleries locally. A visit to The Art Shop & Chapel just a few doors away from The Angel, is a must, and a 5 minute drive away is Court Cupboard. Discover artists in virtually every nook and cranny of Monmouthshire and the Brecon Beacons.
Abergavenny cinema


For a small town, Abergavenny has plenty of entertainment. There is an independent cinema and the newly renovated Borough Theatre. The Angel offers dinner from 6pm, making it an ideal spot for a pre-theatre supper, before attending a show, as the theatre is just a short walk up the street. With a varied programme of performances, there are often concerts taking place which can be combined with a stay at The Angel. 

The oldest theatre in the whole of Wales is to be found in Monmouth and the nearby city of Newport has a new arts centre - the Riverfront.


You can spend a whole day in Blaenavon World Heritage Site; children will love the going on the train, exploring the ironworks and going underground at Big Pit.

On a wet day visit the cinema or drive to Brecon for ten pin bowling or the Play Barn. During school holidays there are occasional family shows at the Borough Theatre and plenty of family activities at the following not-too-distant attractions:


Our heritage is important to us, and castles and other historic sites are everywhere. In fact this border area – known as the Welsh Marches – has more castles per square mile than any other part of Britain. Try these for starters:

Abergavenny market hall, with its verdigris roof, is a recognisable symbol of this town. It’s also a place where you’ll find traders almost every day of the week. Historically, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday are the busy general market days in town but there are also specialist markets from time to time including farmers’ markets, flea markets, craft fairs and antique fairs.


The backbone of Abergavenny’s town centre is a wonderful selection of high quality independent shops, including:
