Before you visit one of our special places over the Easter holidays, take a look at our top tips to make the most of your day out.

Check the website before you visit

All our places have webpages so make sure that you check opening times, Easter trail details, directions, admission prices, parking and catering facilities before you visit.

Follow us for live updates

All our places have social media accounts, which you can link to directly from their webpage. Follow their Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for live updates about local weather, traffic, parking and quieter times to visit.

Avoid peak times

Busy visitor times at our places are Bank Holidays and weekends. To avoid the queues, we recommend visiting later in the day (after 2pm) or during the week when our places are quieter. Many of our places continue their Easter trails after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend too which is a great time to visit. 


Our car parks will be busy during the Bank Holiday weekend and at peak times in the day car parks may fill up. Please park responsibly in the designated parking bays and check social media for updates before you begin your journey. If our car park is full, please come back another time to avoid creating any hotspots.


Due to staff shortages, many of our cafes may not be running at full capacity. So, please be patient and expect to queue at peak times of the day, such as lunchtimes. Our teams will take your order as soon as possible. To avoid queuing you can always bring a picnic. 

Temporarily closed areas

Our places are currently operating with a much smaller team of volunteers. To keep everyone safe, some visitor areas may be temporarily closed. We apologise for any inconveniences. 

Visit on a rainy day

Our places are open daily, with lots of rainy-day activities such as dressing up and indoor trails to keep all ages entertained. Bring your waterproofs for a welly walk and discover some of the best puddles in Wales to splash in.
