  1. I’ve been to Abergavenny loads of times with my boyfriend and he’s never taken me to any of those places! Next time I’m there I’ll make sure he shows me those sights.

  2. I went to Get-together for a comedy evening, was a brilliant night out! lovely place with probably the best coffee in town!

    Is it a good place for an older, female, newcomer to Abergavenny to enjoy herself and not feel out on a limb?

      Hi Bridget, the town is rich with activities for older women. There is the U3A, a group for the older community in the town to meet and socialise. They do events like coffee mornings, film showings and more. The Community Centre offers a substantial amount of varied activities for all ages most days of the week. There is also the Community Orchards and Incredible Edibles if you enjoy gardening and the outdoors. A full list of organisations and groups in the town can be found by clicking here.
