Plan your visit

When are we open, where are we and what’s here?

We have plenty of Visitor Information to help plan your visit, including details of opening times, information for groups and families, access to our facilities and services and more.

We're easy to find! Just 30 minutes' drive from Cardiff and 10 minutes from the A465 Heads of the Valleys road, we're easier to get to than you might think! And we're now open 7 days a week!
