Cadw education visits help you engage in Wales’s heritage. Experience over 5,000 years of our collective history and the lives of our ancestors in key sites where it took place. Plan your education visit to one of our many properties today!

Whether you’re looking to explore the Romans, Edward I, the Welsh Princes, medieval or Tudor life, the earliest settlements or industrial revolution, there are plenty of inspiring places to choose from. Whether you want to:

  • undertake a learning trip to one of our many unstaffed sites
  • take a self led trip round one of our staffed sites
  • or access our downloadable education resources 

We have something for you!

Educational visits to Cadw sites are free; however, we welcome donations, with the money reinvested in conservation work, allowing future generations to enjoy our historic environment. Cadw cares for 130 historic sites around Wales including castles, abbeys, ironworks, hillforts and burial chambers. A suggested voluntary donation of £25 per class would be very welcome to help us care for the nation’s historic sites, but of course is not compulsory.
