Welcome to Usk Town Council

The small picturesque town of Usk is located in the heart of the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside in South Wales. It sits on one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the country, the River Usk, conveniently situated only 10 miles from the M4 yet feeling a whole world away.

The streets of Usk are steeped in history with many charming old buildings, a wonderful Norman castle, a rural life museum, intact Victorian court room at the Usk Sessions House, beautiful churches and a Town Trail which includes 28 sites of historic interest, each with a Blue Plaque.

Renowned for its floral displays and richly deserving of the title 'Town of Flowers', Usk is a regular winner of Wales in Bloom and hosts a colourful Open Gardens weekend in June with over 20 local gardens open to the public. The annual Usk Agricultural show is held every September on the outskirts of the town.

Usk is very popular with walkers and cyclists and in 2017 a brand new children's play area has been opened which is proving to be popular with young families.

Usk's charm also lies in the range of its small independent shops, tearooms and pubs and there is plenty of accommodation in or near the town for those wishing to linger in this delightful place. 

You can find out more about our beautiful Town on this website.

We'd love to see you in Usk - be sure to pay us a visit soon.
