FREE events and visits are promised this Summer when Rhondda Heritage Park joins the national ‘Open Door’ scheme, a great idea for a family day out.

Open Doors Days take place throughout September and offers the public free access to places and buildings of historic and architectural interest. Buildings which are normally free to visit offer something special. In 2010 over 300 sites took part, generating over 90,000 visits. The initiative offers a great variety of choices for day trips for those on family holidays in Wales.

During every weekend September, the popular attraction near Pontypridd, opens its doors to visitors free of charge – including complimentary underground tours – perfect for a family day out.
Tours are available at 10am, 12noon and 2pm and visitors are advised to pre-book as places
are limited. Please telephone 01443 682036 for bookings.
