The tree-lined 200-year old Monmouthshire & Brecon canal provides the perfect setting for a day out on a boat. Take a Beacon Park Day Boat from the end of the canal at Brecon, about 30 minutes drive from the Abergavenny, or from Redline boats at Goytre Wharf, around a 15 minute drive from Abergavenny.
Craig Fit, indoor bouldering centre, welcomes adults and children aged 7 or older. Ideal place to visit if the weather’s wet.
At Llangorse Multi Activity Centre there’s an extensive indoor climbing centre, as well as an outdoor high ropes course and an aerial zipwire experience called Sky Trek.
Canoeing & Kayaking
The river Wye, which for parts of its length forms the border between Wales and England, is a beautiful river for canoeing and kayaking. Hire all the kit, and get tuition if needed, from Monmouth Canoe, about half an hour’s drive away from Abergavenny.
