Rhondda Heritage Park

Rhondda Heritage Park was formed by locals when the Lewis Merthyr Colliery in Trehafod, closed in 1983, and is now one of South Wales' top attractions.
You can explore the engine-winding houses, lamp room and fan house, and take a simulated 'trip underground' with stunning visuals and sound effects re-creating 1950's and late nineteenth century life through the eyes of colliers.
A Visitor Centre houses an art gallery, restaurant, gift shop and a period re-constructed village street.

Rhondda Heritage Park is also home to the Energy Zone Childrens Play Area.
