Coronavirus

Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Attractions in Wales

Wales was once home to a huge range of industrial activities – coal mining, iron working, slate quarries and the products were moved by railway or canal. It's all here – scenic narrow gauge railways, including the newly-opened Welsh Highland Railway, the National Slate Museum, Big Pit Mining Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks plus lots more. The scenery is great too!

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across Wales.
