Cardiff Castle

During 2000 years of history, Cardiff Castle has been a Roman Garrison, a Norman stronghold and in Victorian times was transformed into a gothic fairytale fantasy. 

For a great start to your visit, take in the exhibition and film presentation, see the  original Roman Wall and then pick up your audio guide to explore the Castle grounds. See a selection of the lavishly decorated Castle apartments at your own pace or opt for a guided tour.

Events take place during the summer months, including the popular jousting tournament and open air theatre. The café is the perfect place to relax and soak up the atmosphere of this historic site.
