Visitor numbers across Caerphilly County Borough increase
The number of visitors to attractions across Caerphilly County Borough increased significantly during 2011, new figures reveal.
Llancaiach Fawr Manor in Nelson, Caerphilly Castle, Cwmcarn Forest and the Winding House Museum in New Tredegar all saw increases compared to 2010.
Sixteenth Century Manor House Llancaiach Fawr, which has very popular ‘dress-up’ period characters, saw its visitor numbers swell by a third.
Caerphilly County Borough Council, which runs the attraction, has attributed the rise to a combination of large events and an increase in visitors touring the Manor House in the day and in the evening for Ghost Tours
