Let's see who are here:

Tips for going to Abergavenny Food Festival:
- Get an early train, later trains in the day have been known not to stop at Newport or Cwnbran as they were too full
- Go to the pub after the Festival to avoid overcrowded trains
- Pubs worth visiting include Hen & Chickens (Brains, incl their Craft Beers), King's Arms (Tudor Beers), Angel Hotel (Best pint of Wye Valley HPA I have ever had)
- Watch the firework dispaly from the castle whilst sitting outside the King's Arms
