My husband and I want to visit Tintern Abbey during our trip to England. We will be travelling by train and bus. We'd like to travel from Stratford to Chepstow and then on to Tintern Abbey. We'd like to stay overnight and see some of the area attractions while we're in Wales. Can anyone recommend a two-day itinerary. I am not very familiar with Wales, so I'm not sure where we should stay what we should see, etc. Any advice will be appreciated.
This site will help you with where to stay/what to do around Chepstow:
I suggest you base yourself there, as the bus to Tintern passes through (two-hourly) and it has a station. An alternative base might be Monmouth (bus goes from there too): http://www.monmouth.org.uk/index.php
southwalesattractions.co.uk/... has info on the Abbey (you'll need bus 69).
Lots to see in and around both places though most of your 'whole' day will be spent getting to/from and exploring the abbey and its surroundings, I suspect. Make sure you've got suitable clothes (layers/waterproofs/good walking shoes etc) and enjoy!
Thanks for the helpful information!
