What to expect when you visit Castell Henllys

Immerse yourself in the Iron Age as you explore our roundhouses that have been uniquely rebuilt on the very spot where they would have stood over 2,000 years ago. You will also have the opportunity to meet a friendly member of our tribe who will share their knowledge about prehistoric life. Included with your admission is a Guided Tour of the village at 12 noon.

Castell Henllys is also home to a peaceful woodland where there is a variety of wildlife to spot before arriving at the village itself.
