Visit CAT

CAT closed over the festive period

Our visitor centre is closed for an extended period during the festive period, from 5pm Wednesday 22 December until 10am Tuesday 1 February. Season’s greetings from everyone at CAT and we can’t wait to welcome you back in the New Year.

As a large outdoor attraction with plenty of spaces to explore and a spacious cafe, we’re confident in delivering a great day out while keeping your safety and the safety of our staff a top priority.

Pre-booking is essential to help us ensure that everyone can socially distance.

Plan your visit and find more on what we are doing to help keep you safe, and the role you can play.
