Covid update

In-line with the recent announcement by the Welsh Government, we will be closing our doors this Friday 23 October until Monday 9 November.

Your safety is our highest priority and we hope that this circuit breaker will help to get the spread of COVID under control in Wales. When we re-open in November, our range of measures to make your visit as safe as possible will remain in place.
