Nestled deep in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, there’s really no other place like it.
Step back in time at Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort recreated with fantastic replica Iron Age roundhouses, built right on top of the excavated remains of an existing hill fort, dating back 2,400 years.
A Scheduled Ancient Monument, Castell Henllys is one of many prehistoric promontory forts in the National Park dating to around 600BC, but the only one where you can actually go inside a roundhouse and grind flour and make bread just like the Celts used to!
Castell Henllys is undergoing major re-construction at present. European grant money through Cadw has enabled the site to develop a new visitor centre which is scheduled to open in early autumn. The centre will include a cafe, new interpretation and a new retail space. In the meantime we continue to be open and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by the building work.
The site will be closed for the Christmas period from Friday December 19th 2014 to Monday January 5th 2015
Winter 2014/15 (November 3rd to March 22nd):
Open 11am - 3pm Monday - Friday (last ticket sold at 2.30pm)
