Attraction Information:
Step back in time at Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort recreated with fantastic replica Iron Age roundhouses, built right on top of the excavated remains of an existing hill fort, dating back 2,400 years.

A Scheduled Ancient Monument, Castell Henllys is one of many prehistoric promontory forts in the National Park dating to around 600BC, but the only one where you can actually go inside a roundhouse and grind flour and make bread just like the Celts used to!
