Attraction Information

Tintern Old Station
Built as a Victorian country railway station, the Old Station, Tintern is a charming site to visit for a quiet relaxing day out or to start your walk through the beautiful Wye Valley. The trains don't run from here any more so it's got a wonderfully antiquey atmosphere excellent for getting kids' imaginations going!
The site features a pleasing riverside walk and meadows to explore, a children's adventure play area with equipment suitable for 2 to 12s, a wide picnic site with barbecues for hire or tearoom if you prefer. There's also a tourist information point and a secluded basic camp site that you can book into to extend your stay. The signal box houses changing exhibitions from local artists and crafts people so there's plenty for little eyes to look at and it'll change pretty much every time you go.
The cool Circle of Legends wood carvings which are hidden around feature local mythical or historic characters, forming a series of trails throughout Monmouthshire with delightful surprises where one least expects them.
