Come and enjoy a prehistoric day out at Castell Henllys and immerse yourself in the only Iron Age village in Britain where the roundhouses have been reconstructed on the very spot they would have stood 2,000 years ago.

Owned and managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, we aim to ensure that your visit to the past will also inspire a greener future.

The Iron Age Village

Explore our roundhouses where you will meet friendly Iron Age villagers as they share their knowledge about prehistoric life and living in harmony with the land through talks and demonstrations. Our costumed interpreters represent members of the Demetae tribe, who lived in this corner of Wales before, during and after the Roman invasion.

Archaeologists and other experts have helped rebuild the structures of the village with the help of volunteers, using the same kind of materials to create an authentic Iron Age experience. Castell Henllys is one of the most extensively excavated and studied Iron Age site in the UK and has contributed significantly to the understanding of Iron Age society in West Wales.
