Carew Castle and Castell Henllys close their doors until the New Year

Posted On : 23/11/2020

Carew Castle and Castell Henllys Iron Age Village have closed their doors to the general public until 2021 due to the impact of covid-19.

Although the two Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority sites will be closed to visitors, they will still be accepting bookings in advance from schools and groups.

Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre will remain open to all, with a range of exhibitions and pop-up shopping events in the run up to Christmas.

National Park Authority Director of Countryside, Community and Visitor Services, James Parkin said: “The difficult decision to close these two sites has been taken as a temporary to reduce the Authority’s costs as a result of the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We would like to thank the thousands of people that visited these attractions this year and look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.

“There are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy the National Park, from visiting Oriel y Parc in St Davids or by accessing information on the National Park website.”
