March 1st marks 15 years since the Senedd building officially opened as the iconic and innovative home of Welsh democracy.
You can look through the archive at construction of the award-winning building and visit it from the safety of your home in virtual 360 online tour.
Whilst the doors of the building remain closed to the public, due to risks of COVID-19, the anniversary offers an opportunity to recall how the building came to be.
Visitors can still marvel at the architecture safely in a 360˚ immersive tour which allows people to roam the building, including restricted areas such as the debating Siambr. There’s also an opportunity to ask questions and learn all about the Senedd and upcoming election in online presentation sessions.
“With the Senedd Election just around the corner, it is an exciting time for the Senedd, with additional emphasis on connecting with people across the country to educate, inspire and emphasise the importance of Using Their Voice with their vote, and to remember to register by the all-important deadline on 19 April,” says Richard Gwyn Jones from the Senedd visitor team who has guided tour groups from all corners of the world since the building opened.
“The Senedd is one of Wales’ most recognised buildings – iconic and renowned across the world. Although we cannot welcome visitors through the doors on the 15th anniversary of its opening, we are proud to keep the building open safely for people across the globe with our virtual 360 tour, online sessions and exhibitions and to continue to give people a chance to get to know their Senedd wherever in Wales they may be.”
