The Visitor Experience

The site is getting back to its usual opening patterns but your visit may be slightly different from normal. Most of our indoor spaces have re-opened but there are capacity limitations in some e.g the Quarrymen’s Houses and Slate Splitting Demonstrations. These will be clearly indicated on site. Please look out for and follow any new signs around the site. More information will be available on arrival.
