FRIENDS of Manx National Heritage will be able to use their membership cards at the Welsh Government’s historic environment service Cadw’s sites from January.
The reciprocal agreement means members of Cadw will also be able to use their membership cards to gain free access to MNH sites.
FMNH admin and development officer Nicola Pemberton said: ‘I am delighted to announce this early Christmas present for FMNH members, which will greatly add to the benefits already available as part of FMNH membership.
‘We have been working with our colleagues at Cadw to make our unique sites available to each other and this agreement is the culmination of that work.’
She added: ‘We look forward to welcoming members of Cadw to the Isle of Man and I’m sure FMNH members will enjoy visiting such wonderful sites as Conwy Castle, Tintern Abbey and Caernarfon Castle – to name just a few.’
Cadw marketing and public relations manager Carys Hewitt said: ‘I’m sure Cadw members will be delighted that they are now able to enjoy the fantastic sites on the Isle of Man, such as the House of Manannan, Peel Castle and much more – free of charge.’
She said Manx visitors would receive a warm Welsh welcome at Cadw attractions, adding: ‘Most of our sites are open year round and a fantastic events programme runs throughout the year.’
