Castell Henllys is the only Iron Age Village in Britain reconstructed on the exact site where our Celtic ancestors lived 2,000 years ago. Here you can walk in the footsteps of the Demetae tribe. Our exciting events offer you the chance to train as a warrior, watch a woodsman at work, huddle around a roundhouse fire to hear tales from a bygone age and learn lessons from the past that can help us to conserve the landscape we live in today. The hill fort sits on an inland outcrop with stunning views of the surrounding countryside which today forms the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Our Visitor Centre is based on the Celts’ ancient roundhouses and was built using local materials and sustainable technologies. The Castell Henllys experience is better than ever, with the addition of an interactive Visitor Centre. So before you head up to the fort, you can enjoy: Interactive exhibitions * Café and gift shop * Children’s play area Barefoot Trail * Riverside picnic site.
We have visited many different types of attractions during the course of our selection process and every single one has earned its right to be one of the Top 100 Attractions in Wales. None more so than Castell Henllys! Perched on a spur of land near the Pembrokeshire coast, this attraction has got everything you would require to make a great Welsh tourist attraction! Value for money, uniqueness, and great for all ages and that's just for starters. I have been to this attraction quite a few times and on every occasion I seem to spot something I hadn't noticed before. As you walk around the Iron Age fort it isn't hard to imagine what life would have been like on the west coast of Wales way back 2400 years ago. You get to smell the smells they would of smelt, you get to sample also the same harsh daily life that would have been their only form of survival in what would have been very grim times for the human race. All this and more comes to life here and I feel the team at Castell Henllys have done an amazing job of recreating just how fundamental being a close knit community would have been to these early Celtic people.
