Our re-opening plans
Our unstaffed heritage sites are re-opening gradually with new safety measures in place, these sites are free to visit with no pre-booking required; please check our Find a Place to Visit Page for our latest updates.
Many of our staffed heritage sites have re-opened including: Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Caerphilly, Castell Coch, Chepstow, Conwy, Criccieth, Denbigh, Harlech, Kidwelly, Laugharne, Raglan, Rhuddlan castles, Blaenavon Ironworks, Plas Mawr (Conwy), St Davids Bishop's Palace, Tintern Abbey, Tretower Court and Castle and Valle Crucis Abbey.
We apologise that visitors may not be able to access all areas of our sites due to the need to comply with the ongoing rules relating to social distancing. However, the entirety of the current reduction in the VAT rate is being passed on to our visitors and this is reflected in lower admission prices.
Please check our individual monument pages for site specific opening times, current facilities and disabled access.
