The Old Station nestles beside the River Wye in the heart of the Wye Valley in Tintern. This idyllic 10 – acre site boasts the best of what Monmouthshire has to offer.
The Old Station has developed an excellent reputation as one of the area’s top visitor centres and was voted the UK’s favourite park in 2011. The site has held the coveted Green Flag award since 2009.
The Old Station is a wonderful hub for walkers, and its impressive facilities make it an ideal small conference venue – just the place for an office away day.
There are three railway carriages on site. Two carriages contain a souvenir and gift shop, a Destination Wye Valley exhibition area with information about the heritage of the Wye Valley, a tourist information point and a meeting room, which when not booked out shows a film about the railway and surrounding countryside. The third smaller carriage houses a scale model of the station as it would have been in the 1930s.
Visitors can sit, relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery, wander along a relaxing one mile riverside circular walk, before visiting the Circle of Legends. The Legends are 6 local characters from history how all have a walk attached to them for more details and to download the maps go to www.thecircleoflegends.co.uk
