Cadw (, a Welsh verb meaning "to keep/protect") is the historic environment service of the Welsh Government and part of the Tourism and Culture group. Cadw works to protect the historic buildings and structures, the landscapes and heritage sites of Wales, so that the public can visit them, understand their significance and enjoy their experiences. Cadw arranges events at its managed properties, provides lectures and teaching sessions, offers heritage walks and hosts an online shop. Members of the public can become members of Cadw and have such membership privileges as a magazine, reduced prices at the online shop and free entry to properties and most events. It also offers reciprocal arrangements with similar organisations in other parts of the United Kingdom. Cadw offers employment possibilities and work experience placements.
