Centre for Alternative Technology

Nestled in the stunning Dyfi Biosphere in Mid Wales, The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is a world-renowned eco centre that demonstrates practical solutions for a sustainable future. 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 sustainable building practices and renewable energy. With a shop full of eco gift ideas and tasty treats or hearty lunches in CAT’s vegetarian café, CAT has everything you need for a great day out. New for 2019 - Dogs welcome! All well-behaved four-legged friends are now welcome to come to CAT for free.
