Who we are
What we do at Welsh Water is incredibly important – we give three million customers safe, clean water, take away their dirty water and help to protect our beautiful environment. It’s an awesome responsibility, and we have to earn our customers’ trust every single day. Being the only not-for-profit company in the water industry is certainly a good start. Every single penny we make goes back into looking after their water and environment, rather than going to the pockets of shareholders.
We attract over 600,000 visitors a year to our four key visitor centres, located in some of the most stunning locations around Wales. We offer a wide range of facilities and activities, including water sports, mountain biking, angling, walking and a great cup of coffee or tasty meal in our restaurants which have some of the best views in Wales. Our visitor centres provide a unique opportunity for us to engage with our customers and visitors in a beautiful environment, whilst reinforcing our brand identity and unique business model. We are also proud of the important role that our visitor centres play in delivering our education, conservation and biodiversity ambitions.
There has never been a more exciting time to join us. Over the past five years, we have been investing in our visitor centres to improve facilities and the offering to our customers. We continue to roll out our multi-million pound improvement programme across existing sites and are planning new recreational facilities for the future.
Our ambition is to create a sustainable future for our visitor attractions as hubs for visitor enjoyment, health & wellbeing, reconnecting people with our beautiful environment.
