Free Days Out
Friday March 1st – All Across Wales 🙂
To celebrate St David’s Day and mark Visit Wales’ Year of Discovery, 16 Cadw sites, that normally charge for admission, will open their doors as part of the programme — including the spectacular St Davids Bishop’s Palace, located near the site Saint David himself founded his monastery.
Due to the limited capacity of the site, visits to Castell Coch require advance booking.
Please be aware, all Castell Coch tickets have now been reserved.
Minister for Culture and Tourism, Lord Elis-Thomas, said:
“Everyone can explore our rich history through our heritage sites in Wales as Cadw sites are free for everyone on the national day of our Patron Saint”.
“From historic buildings to iconic sites, Wales is a country full of fascinating heritage and legendary monuments and you can discover the stories that they have to share for free yourselves on St Davids Day.”
“Everyone will be able to continue or begin their own legendary journey into our past to uncover the stories in our castles, abbeys and other historic sites.”
To find out more about a site near you visit our Days Out section.
