We welcome visits to Yr Ysgwrn from schools and educational establishments, which will surely encourage discussion and understanding to students of all ages.

In addition of being an opportunity to learn more about the history of Hedd Wyn, there's a chance to taste the community's way of life at the turn of the twentieth century including the shadow of the Great War and the Eisteddfod tradition.

In a picturesque location nestled in the Snowdonian hills, Yr Ysgwrn is sure to inspire the younger generation and offers the opportunity to appreciate the life of Hedd Wyn and his peers in context.

To assure the best possible visit for the students, it's suggested that 30 is the most suitable number for every visit. It's expected that teachers and assistants supervise the students on site at all times.

Contact us for more information and to discuss your requirements.
