Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is gearing up for another busy tourism season having seen visitor numbers increase at its attractions in 2013.
More than 25,000 people crossed the gateway at Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort last year, an increase of nearly 1,700.
A series of exciting developments will be taking place at Castell Henllys in 2014, including the redevelopment of the Visitor Centre to include new interpretation and exhibitions, a shop and a café.
Authority Chairman Cllr Mike James said: “I am thrilled that so many people visited our centres in 2013 and hope the upward trend will continue in 2014. We plan a range of exciting activities and events at our sites every year and hope people continue to visit and enjoy these fascinating places that are a great day out for the whole family.
“The continued investment in our tourist attractions demonstrates the Authority’s commitment to sustaining Pembrokeshire’s position as a leading visitor destination, which not only helps to raise the county’s profile but also provides a vital contribution to our local economy.”
