LANDMARKS in Gwent will be among more than 300 across Wales to open their doors for visitors to discover the myths and legends contained within for free.

The Open Doors scheme offers free entry, activities, guided tours or special events throughout September, with some unique locations opening their doors to the public for the very first time.

Among those available to visit for free are Newport’s Transporter Bridge and Tredegar House, the Tredegar town clock, and The Kymin in Monmouth.

Additionally, Cadw is offering the first 25,000 people to register through its Eventbrite page, free entry to its 23 paid-admission sites over the final weekend in September (23 and 24).

Ken Skates, cabinet secretary for economy and infrastructure, said: “Cadw is committed to making Wales’s heritage accessible to all and Open Doors is a fantastic programme that does just that.

With the incredible support of our partners in the heritage sector and volunteers across the country, Open Doors gives people the chance to visit our best known sites and get the rare opportunity to explore many more which are not usually open to the public.

“Wales is famous for its unrivalled collection of historic sites which demonstrate our rich heritage and are steeped in folklore.

“From ancient castles constructed by famous Welsh Princes, to Roman Amphitheatres rumoured to be linked to King Arthur’s very own Camelot, there are legends abound to be explored this September.”
