The Welsh Government has announced outdoor attractions in Wales will reopen from Monday, July 6.
The reopening will happen on the same day that the government lifts the five mile “stay local” restrictions currently in place in Wales.
It means that attractions like Cwmcarn Forest Drive, which usually welcomes visitors from across the UK and Europe, will be able to reopen its outdoor facilities from next Monday.
Caerphilly Castle, run by Welsh Government body Cadw, has not announced whether it will open its outdoor spaces.
Meanwhile, indoor attractions like Llancaiach Fawr in Nelson, and the Winding House Museum in Elliotstown, both run by Caerphilly County Borough Council, will not yet be able to reopen.
Businesses in Caerphilly have previously voiced concerns that they will not receive the necessary footfall if the county’s major attractions do not reopen.

Speaking at the Welsh Government’s daily press briefing, Minister for International Relations and the Welsh Language, Eluned Morgan, also confirmed self-contained accommodation is planning to reopen on Saturday July 11.
Last month, accommodation providers in Caerphilly welcomed the news they will be able to reopen, however many admitted concerns a shortened season and a lack of footfall may mean they risk not reopening next year.
