Explore the Industrial Age in the Digital Age!
The Blaenavon Digital Passport is designed to be a fun and interactive digital guide for visitors to the Blaenavon World Heritage Site. Learn about, and enjoy, the story of a landscape that has been ‘transformed by industry, reclaimed by nature and is being managed for the future’.
Download the “Blaenavon Passport” and go on an audio tour of Blaenavon Heritage Town with your tour-guide “Lewis Browning” who lived in Blaenavon in 1906; or follow the “Hidden Landscapes of Forgeside” trail and see how the landscape played an integral part in the Industrial Revolution.

Download a QR Reader (available via the Blaenavon Passport App) scan the codes and learn about the history of the World Heritage Site through augmented reality, videos, audio clips and historic photographs.
