The project is largely funded by the Welsh Government and from EU Convergence Funds and will help maximise the economic value of heritage by increasing the number, length and value of visits to Wales. The project will also help open Wales’s outstanding heritage to a wider audience by making it more enjoyable both for visitors and for people who live in Wales.
