Castell Henllys

History & Heritage See & Do


Castell Henllys is an archaeological site of an Iron Age hillfort near Cardigan in North Pembrokeshire.

Step back in time, to around 600 BC, and experience life as an Iron Age Celt – you can even grind flour for making bread as they used to!

For the last 20 years, the site has been used as an exercise in reconstruction archaeology. Experiments in prehistoric farming have taken place and four roundhouses and a granary have been reconstructed from their Iron Age foundations.

Owned by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Castell Henllys is a popular attraction and is open to the public all year round.
