Plan your visit
If you've wondered it, we've tried it. If we haven't tried it, we will.
Built in an old slate quarry in the foothills of Snowdonia our visitor centre has 7 acres of interactive displays, organic gardens, cafe, shop and adventure playground. It opened in 1974 when CAT was only a small community starting to put sustainable living to the test. Now the organisation has grown in size and reach, welcoming thousands of visitors and school children every year, providing free information to hundreds of thousands of people and offering short courses and postgraduate degrees for those looking for more in-depth knowledge and skills.
Living more sustainably saves money, creates green jobs, provides a healthier lifestyle and makes sense. There are many solutions already available to tackle the issues our planet faces. Come and explore what you can do.
Looking for something specific onsite?
If you're interested in a very specific area of the site, or are researching solutions to a specific problem, contact us prior to your visit. We will help you choose the best day to visit.
Summer holiday activities run from 18th July to 29th August - see our calendar for details.
Unfortunately the train will be out of action until 28th July. We know this is disappointing so we're giving £1 off entry tickets during this time.
