The meagre remains of Monmouth Castle, where in 1397 Henry V was born, are set back from Monnow St. Except for the great tower (no public access), it was dismantled in the 17th century and the stone used to build Great Castle House next door, now headquarters of the Royal Monmouthshire Regiment. Inside is the volunteer-run Castle & Regimental Museum , a labour of love squeezed into a cupboard-sized space, tracing the regiment's history from the 16th century.
