Llanelli Star - - News -

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.
