Things to Do

Explore the past

Take a journey through time with free entry to the UK's top historic buildings and sites

Discover the buildings, people and stories that form our rich history. With sites throughout the UK, there's plenty for you and your family to explore.

Following the latest government recommendations, we have taken the decision to close all our staffed historic sites from the end of Wednesday 18th March until 1st May. We will be reviewing this and will keep you updated. Some sites may be opened earlier and we will let you know if this is the case. We also need to cancel our public events during this period. All Cadw sites will also be closed until further notice.
