Welcome to Monmouth Gov UK

The market town of Monmouth, situated on the South Wales border, by the banks of the River Wye.

The town has historic connections with early Roman and medieval times, and its most famous sons are Henry V and Charles Rolls, of Rolls-Royce fame. With a current population of 10,000 it has easy access to Cardiff, Bristol and the Midlands via motorway links. 

The web site contains current Town Council Agendas and Minutes, detailed histories, information about local Clubs and Organizations, and a contacts page for your convenience.

The Mayor and the Town Councillors invite you to learn more about their town and hope you will visit Monmouth in person in the near future.
