Unstaffed heritage sites: a gradual reopening
Please visit respectfully, and responsibly.
In accordance with the latest Welsh Government advice — all reopened unstaffed Cadw sites are currently open to Welsh residents only.
Please check our Latest News area for our most up-to-date visitation guidance.
In line with the gradual easing of Welsh Government lockdown restrictions, we are now able to start reopening a selection of our unstaffed, outdoor monuments.
Following thorough risk assessments and the introduction of new site safety measures (where necessary), visitors will be able to return to selected unstaffed Cadw sites as of Monday 9 November for daily exercise and wellbeing.

We are working hard to reopen as many of our unstaffed, outdoor heritage properties as possible and will continue to update this webpage as other sites reopen in coming weeks and months.
In order for us to keep this selection of sites open and safe for everyone, we are asking our visitors to help keep them safe by visiting respectfully and responsibly.
To help with this, we have developed the following guidelines for visiting our unstaffed sites:
- help keep Wales safe by avoiding extensive travel — we ask that you only visit within your local authority area
- maintain a distance of at least 2m from all other visitors outside your household
- do not meet up in large groups of more than six people from one other household
- avoid high risk activities on site, including BBQs and the consumption of alcohol
- follow the guidelines set by Welsh Government at all times, taking any changes into account as the weeks and months progress.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation — we look forward to welcoming you back to more of our heritage sites in coming months — as soon as it is safe to do so.
