CARDIGAN Castle’s bargain £5 local pass for SA43 residents is returning for a limited period only.

To celebrate the castle’s third anniversary of opening on April 15, the local pass offer will run for five weeks up until May 25.

Anyone who lives in the SA43 postal area can buy the pass – all they need to do is bring proof of postcode to the castle reception. The pass allows entry for one adult and up to five children for the whole of 2018.

It is valid for all castle themed days as well as daily entry.

And if you live outside the SA43 postcode area, the castle is introducing an annual pass for families – just £30 for two adults and up to five children. This pass is available now from the castle reception.

Castle director Jac Davies said: “The local pass has proved extremely popular this year, despite extending the original renewal deadline we have still had a huge number of local residents coming in to see if they could get their hands on a £5 pass.

“To celebrate the third year of opening and a year from winning Channel 4’s Restoration of the Year, we felt that ensuring the local community continue to benefit from the Castle’s restoration be a fitting way to mark the occasion.”
