Get dressed up in your best buccaneer costume, test your sea legs as you walk the plank and have a go at plonking a pirate as we bring you an entire weekend of pirate antics.

Avast me mateys!

Captain Henry Morgan has returned from his latest voyage with an impressive bounty and he’s inviting you to celebrate with a fête at the home of his ancestors this Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

The annual celebration of one of the world’s most infamous buccaneers has grown into a whole weekend of festivities as we turn our historic house and gardens into a playground for pirates. 

Raiders and scallywags can prepare to pillage the treasures of Tredegar House and take part in a whole host of pirate-themed activities that have earned the festivities a reputation as one of the best family days out in South Wales. 

Activities include:

  • Plonk the pirate
  • Walk the plank
  • Lime and spoon races
  • Cleaning up the seas
  • Take a photo with a mermaid
  • Sinking the fleet
  • Sea shanties

And much more!
