We have several fantastic visitor centres across our area.
The Welsh Wildlife Centre is an award winning visitor centre with a fantastic cafe which serves fresh, locally sourced food. Situated on the Teifi Marsh Nature Reserve this is a perfect day out for the family. There are beautiful walks around the site, it is on the Lôn Teifi, the National Cycle route 82 between Aberystwyth and Fishguard.
The area around the Welsh Wildlife Centre has many attractions including the castle at Cilgerran, the attractive town of Cardigan and canoeing on the river. A wonderful place to holiday.
Parc Slip Visitor Centre is on our Parc Slip Nature Reserve, this visitor centre is currently in the process of being developed. There is a historic display on the first floor recording the events on the mining accident which occurred directly below the visitor centre itself.
The site itself is on National Cycle Route 4 and the nearest train station is in Tondu. The reserve itself is reclaimed from an old coal mine and relics of its industrial past are present around the site. The site is a wonderful example of how nature can reassert itself.
Lockley Lodge is the gateway to our islands reserves of Skomer and Skokholm, it sells ice cream, basic refreshments and a wide variety of gifts. The centre also has camera links to the islands for those days when the boats cannot sail.
Our two marine groups also have visitor centres which are fantastic places to visit.

Staffed by volunteers, the visitor centre is free to enter and is open seven days a week between April and November. The facilities include interpretative and interactive displays showcasing the huge variety of marine wildlife found in Cardigan Bay, including an aquarium full of rock pool species. There’s also a gift shop area so that you can take home a souvenir of your time there.
