When planning the perfect getaway it’s always good to build in some flexibility. Who knows what might come up or what the weather might do. It is Wales after all.

One thing you can depend on is Cadw’s 3-day or 7-day Explorer Passes. They provide a great value way to explore the wealth of historic attractions Wales has to offer. The passes offer groups the freedom to explore as many of Cadw’s historic attractions* as they wish or can squeeze in during a visit to Wales. The 3-day pass can be used in any 7-day period and the 7-day pass in any 14-day period.

The more the pass is used, the greater the savings. You as travel operators can also earn up to 25% in commission.

The Explorer Passes are available on a firm-sale basis and are sold as either single adult, two adult or family passes.

Individuals can buy the passes directly from all staffed sites.
