Helpful staff and a great little café hiding behind it. Don't be misled by the small frontage. Upstairs is a (free) exhibition centre. St Mary's Priory next door and the Swan Meadow car park immediately behind. A recommended first stop for visitors to Abergavenny.

Definitely worth a visit where the friendly staff can help you plan your day - They're able to tell you what's worthwhile to do and from experience, they're quite right. Good selection of maps to purchase too if needed.
