Rhondda Heritage Park


Make a Pit Stop at Rhondda Heritage Park - Whatever the Weather!

Our Underground Experience Tours are fully guided by ex-miner guides and take approximately 40 minutes.  It is adviseable to book your tour prior to visit.

Don your safety helmet in the lamp room, ride ‘the cage’ to ‘pit bottom’ where you will ‘live the experience’ of life as a miner and hear from your guide about the hazards and tasks miners endured as part of their daily work.


On the surface visit the Visitor Centre where admission is free. Here you will find an indoor reconstruction of a period village street displaying the domestic and commercial life of the Valleys.



On the first floor you will find ‘Level One’ our Contemporary Art Gallery & Café with stunning views of the lower Rhondda Valleys  its a great place to relax over coffee, meet friends for lunch and enjoy the regularly changing programme of exhibitions, exclusive artworks, ceramics and jewellery.



For younger visitors the excitement continues with a visit to the Energy Zone a bright outdoor play area for children aged up to 13 years.
