Just off the M4, and with 90 acres of garden and parkland to explore, the historic Tredegar House is a convenient place to stop on your visit to South Wales.

Planning your visit

We ask that all group trips pre-book their visit to Tredegar House with our team. One group is allowed to visit per day and staff will let you know if we’re expecting to be particularly busy (such as during school holidays or for specific events).

You can pre-book by emailing us at with your planned date and requirements.

While you’re here

Although we do not offer private tours at the moment, there is still plenty to explore while you are here.

We suggest you start by checking in with our team at visitor reception when you arrive, before having a refreshing drink in the Brewhouse Café. You can then wander through the elegant formal gardens, look in on the mighty stable block and charming orangery before entering the impressive red-brick mansion.

Exploring the house and beyond

The passionate team of volunteers are located throughout the house to explain more about the unique history of this site, tell some exciting stories about the Morgan family and answer any questions you may have. Visitors usually spend around two hours exploring the house and gardens.

As you leave the house through the kitchen corridor, you will find yourself near the café once more. You may wish to stop to recharge with a sandwich, pasty or slice of cake, before taking a walk along the lakeside and around the extensive parkland to see what remains of the Morgan family’s grand estate.

You are welcome to spend as long as you like at Tredegar House, but we usually suggest you allocate half a day to explore this impressive site. Please check our opening times for your intended visit as they change seasonally.
