History in the heart
of the capital
Cardiff Castle / Castell Caerdydd4
Why locals love it
Cardiff Castle is one of Wales' leading heritage attractions, with over 2,000 years of history just waiting to be explored within its walls. That's something to be pretty proud of!
Aside from its obvious allure, it hosts regular community events such as food festivals, concerts, open air cinema and theatre. It provides a real hub to the city!
Why you should visit it
You can't NOT visit the castle when in Cardiff! Sat within a gorgeous parkland, this jaw-dropping castle is a feast for the eyes. See the vast grounds, battlements, wartime shelters, Norman Keep and spectacular Victorian apartments before taking to the top of the tower for a 360 view of this exceptional city. Bring a picnic and make a day of it!
The castle does offer guided tours, but pick up a free audio guide and discover the castle's many secrets yourself (without the extra charge!).
