Redevelopment of Welsh heritage site

Date Posted: 26/07/2011

Groups planning a visit to the Welsh heritage site of Strata Florida Abbey can now visit its newly refurbished visitor centre, exhibition and garden following a £400K redevelopment project.

The aim was to develop a high quality attraction reflecting the significance of the abbey, introducing visitors to some of the colourful events which have shaped this now tranquil site.

Located at the edge of the Cambrian mountains, visiting groups can explore a new interactive exhibition and interpretation panels, and view a host of medieval artefacts which have been conserved. A new events area has also been created within the historic garden.

The remains of a Cistercian monastery founded in 1164, Strata Florida Abbey has particular significance due to its close association with the medieval Welsh princes of Deheubarth (south-west Wales), many of whom are buried at the site.
