Welcome to Usk
If you’re enjoying a walking holiday or golf weekend in Wales, be sure to spend a day or more in this historic town. You’ll find us nestling quietly in the gentle Monmouthshire hills, just along the lazy banks of the River Usk.
As you’ll soon discover, the town of Usk is steeped in history, from the ruins of a Norman castle to the seventeenth century buildings that adorn the cobbled streets. It's no wonder our visitors tell us it’s like stepping back in time.
But you’ll still find plenty to see and do here. Walking around the town, you’ll find antique shops and clothing boutiques with a splash of local flavour. With all this to see, Usk has to be the perfect day trip in Wales – but with so many hotels and restaurants, you might be tempted to linger here and call it a holiday…
