Castle opening its doors as part of a celebration of Wales’s great heritage
OVER the coming weekend, the people of Wales and beyond can visit their favourite Cadw site for free, including Kidwelly Castle – thanks to Open Doors.
Funded and organised by Cadw, the annual festival celebrates Wales’s unique history and offers free access to more than 300 heritage properties through the month of September.
And, this weekend 26 of Cadw’s most iconic heritage sites will join in the celebrations — with thousands of visitors to be granted free, un-ticketed access.
With no booking required, visitors to Cadw’s Open Doors weekend will be granted free entry on arrival to its participating historic monuments, with the exception of Castell Coch and Plas Mawr, which both require advance reservation.
Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport Lord Elis-Thomas said: “Cadw is committed to making Wales’s heritage accessible to everyone and Open Doors is a brilliant way to showcase our iconic heritage sites, but also our hidden, and perhaps less obvious, historic gems.
