In line with recent changes to the Welsh Government’s Covid-19 Alert Levels, the Senedd building has been opening in phases.

Currently, the Senedd building is open between Monday – Thursday, 09.00 – 16.30 or until the end of Senedd business, and you will need to book a free ticket to visit.

We’ll share our plans of opening the buildings on our social media and website, so remember to follow us there if you don’t already.

Schools and colleges - including youth groups - in Wales that are outside a 10-mile radius (20 mile return journey) of the Senedd in Cardiff Bay will receive a subsidy for their educational visit to the Senedd. Schools and colleges within a 10-mile radius of Cardiff Bay will not be eligible to apply for a subsidy.

Schools and colleges can claim one travel subsidy per academic year following an educational visit to the Senedd.

Schools and colleges cannot claim the travel subsidy if their visit is not pre-booked and conducted by the Senedd’s Education Officers.

Educational visits should be booked at least three weeks in advance. To arrange an education visit please contact us by email or by telephone on 0300 200 6565. Schools are advised to book early to avoid disappointment as available sessions will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
