The Grade II* registered Cyfarthfa Park is one of the most frequently visited free tourist attractions in Wales.

Covering 65 hectares it occupies a prominent position overlooking the town of Merthyr Tydfil and the historic site of the Cyfarthfa Ironworks. The Park also provides a beautiful backdrop to the Grade I listed Cyfarthfa Castle, former home to the illustrious Crawshay family, and is recognised as being the best example of a 19th century Ironmaster’s residence to have survived in South Wales.

Throughout the year Cyfarthfa Park is frequently used as a destination for events ranging from large-scale concerts and firework displays to craft demonstrations, fun runs and charity events.

Within the Park, the Canolfan Cyfarthfa and The Bothy Heritage Centre are the Park’s newest developments housing accessible meeting spaces and refreshment facilities. Suitable for groups, meetings, conferences and celebrations bookings can be made by contacting the Museum.
