A late 17th-century mansion and one of the wonders of Wales

Tredegar House is one of the architectural wonders of Wales and one of the most significant late 17th-century houses in the whole of the British Isles.

Situated within 90 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland, this delightful red brick house provides an ideal setting for a fantastic day out.

For more than 500 years the house was home to one of the greatest Welsh families, the Morgans, later Lords Tredegar. The Morgan family owned more than 40,000 acres in Monmouthshire, Breconshire and Glamorgan at the end of the 18th century. Their lives impacted on the population of south-east Wales socially, economically and politically and influenced the heritage of the area.

Work will start on our historic workshops this June

Following a fire in December 2013 our historic workshops were left devastated. We're over the moon to say that we'll be starting restoration work this June and will be taking the opportunity to do some further conservation work too to make sure our workshops can be here forever, for everyone.

In the meantime our lovely Visitor Reception team have moved to a temporary building just outside their usual spot - pop along and say hello next time you're in the neighbourhood.
