The Elan Valley is a great day out at any time, but on open days you can visit the inside of one of the dams between 1pm and 4pm.

The dates for 2018 are as follows:

  • Wednesday 4th April
  • Wednesday 30th May
  • Saturday 30th June
  • Tuesday 31st July
  • Tuesday 14th August
  • Saturday 1st September
  • Thursday 1st November

This is your chance to venture into the Pen y Garreg Dam and up to the central tower. You’ll enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the Reservoir wall – and learn about the feat of engineering that made Elan.

Park at Penbont car park (adjacent to the Penbont  House Tea Room) and take a walk through the woodland, up the steps to the dam entrance.
There are steps inside the dam which may be wet and in some areas there are low light levels. Children should be carefully supervised at all times.

Minimum donation £1 for adults and children. All proceeds go to WaterAid.

Please check the Elan Valley events page for any late changes to this schedule.
