About Centre For Alternative Technology
Arrive in style - Take one of Europe’s steepest water-balanced cliff railways up to the visitor centre and discover a hidden world, packed full of working examples of renewable energy, beautiful organic gardens, experimental green buildings and sustainably managed woodland habitats.
With plenty to see and do, CAT is a great place for the kids! Run off extra energy in the eco-adventure playground, discover a world of green living on family-friendly trails and scavenger hunts or come during the school holidays for a fun-packed programme of family activities, shows and workshops.
Combining exciting practical skills with immersive wellbeing experiences, CAT truly is the home of sustainability education. Join a tour with one of CAT’s expert guides to dig a little deeper or come along to a day or week long course to explore everything from sustainable woodland management and nature connection to creative green building practices and renewable energy.
If you can’t find what you need while exploring the displays then try out our dedicated on-site information service. Whether you’re hoping to install solar panels or crack on with an organic container garden, knowledgeable staff are on hand to offer expert advice.
Get involved in an exciting evolving project – ‘Living Wales’ monitors the state of the Welsh landscape from space and visitors are invited to come and help out.
With a shop full of eco goodies, and tasty treats or hearty lunches in CAT’s vegetarian café, CAT has everything you need for a great day out. You can even bring the family dog for free.
