Of course, the majestic Tintern Abbey is the main attraction in the area. But Tintern is a pleasant, picturesque village too. For the most part, it hugs the west bank of the River Wye, so you are rarely more than a few metres from the English border! At one end is the Abbey, but at the other end is the little village church of St Michael and, I believe, a vineyard which is open to the public. In between there are many restaurants, cafe's, pubs and small shops to explore. The village even has its own police station!

Altogether it is one of the nicest and most active little Welsh villages I've come across!
