Blaenavon World Heritage Site is an ideal destination for groups – young and old. Located at the gateway to the South Wales Valleys, the attractions in World Heritage Site tell the story of an area which was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Start your journey at the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre to find out why the area was the perfect location for the Iron industry to thrive. Venture 300 feet below ground at the Big Pit National Coal Museum; see the remains of the blast furnaces at Blaenavon Ironworks, where BBC Coalhouse was filmed; view the Industrial Landscape from a carriage of a train on the Blaenavon Heritage Railway; or sample some of the local beer at Rhymney Brewery.
