Joint season tickets covering annual entrance to Carew Castle and Tidal Mill and Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort – managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority - are now available from these two iconic sites.
Carew Castle Site Manager Teresa Hogsflesh said: "The upcoming Jubilee weekend is the perfect opportunity to buy and start using the ticket, with special events being held over the anniversary long weekend.
"A joint season ticket lasts one year from the date it is purchased and prices are as follows: adults £15, concessions (OAPs, students, children) £12, family (2 adults and 2 children) £40. Normal entry prices are £4.75, £3.50 and £12.75 respectively, so it's a great saving if you want to get out regularly with the family for a day out."
On Bank Holiday Monday June 4th, Castell Henllys will play host to a Prehistoric Fayre with demonstrations and workshops ranging from wood turning on a pole lathe and basketry to metal working coupled with demonstrations of Iron Age warfare and weaponry.
Karl Lee, one of the few professional flint knappers in Britain, will be demonstrating his craft, while sharing archaeological information. For a small fee people can learn, under Karl's expert tuition, how to make tools such as arrowheads, spearheads or hand axes. Places are limited for the workshop so booking is essential on 01239 891319.
Don't miss out on Fighting and Farming and Threshold to the Past events which are also on offer at the Iron Age Fort. The ancient Celtic Feast of Beltaine will also be celebrated at Castell Henllys on Bank Holiday Tuesday with a Willow Workshop, Myths and Mysteries and Burning the Wicker Man.
Carew Castle and Tidal Mill will be holding a Medieval Medley of activities to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, with three events including Bowlore, Pembroke Dock Raptors (June 2nd – 5th) and a Herb and Craft Fayre (June 2nd – 4th).
Immerse yourself in times past with sword fighting, archery displays and displays of armour and blunt weapons to inspire the imagination of the oldest would-be knight, or those of a gentler persuasion can wander through the Herb and Craft Fayre with its herb garden and craft and produce stalls.
Learn about falconry and other magnificent birds of prey with Pembroke Dock Raptors. There are short one to one sessions with birds at an additional cost of £3.
