What to expect when you visit Castell Henllys

With your entry ticket you will have three hours to explore all of the outdoor areas of Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, including our woodland and Barefoot Trail. In the village itself, a friendly member of our tribe will tell you all about life in the Iron Age. You will also be allocated a time slot upon your arrival to take part in an outdoor crafty activity or to watch an outdoor demonstration of an ancient craft.

If you want even more of an adventure then you can purchase our self-led activity ‘Warrior Quest’ where there are riddles to solve and challenges to complete with a prize for those who succeed!
