Info

Cardiff Castle, Wales, United Kingdom, is one of the leading heritage attractions and a site of international significance. Situated at the heart of the capital, the Castle is a unique blend of different architectural styles. Although mostly Norman, there are still Roman parts to it, as well as Gothic-Victorian parts, built in the 19th century.

Creating a fairytale fantasy, the castle walls and towers conceal 2,000 years of history. With the exposed Clock Tower to view, the medieval Keep to climb and the atmospheric Wartime Shelters to explore, make sure you allow plenty of time for your visit.

Central to the castle bounds is the twelve-sided Norman Keep which is the finest in Wales. Also known as a ‘shell’ keep, its outer walls provided a shell for smaller buildings within it.

Within the walls of the Castle are tunnels, which came into their own as air-raid shelters during the Second World War.

A Gothic Fantasy Palace, the Castle Apartments, have 17 majestic rooms.  The Clock Tower is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Cardiff and has rib-vaulted Winter Smoking room with decoration on the theme of Time. The Arab room, with Islamic vault, trellis work, multi-coloured marble floor, marble walls, and Arabic stained glass, is the most cherished view of the tour.

Over the years, the castle has also hosted a number of musical and other events including movie screenings. Famous artists have performed at this unique venue including, Green Day.

Different guided tours will walk you through the various locations of the castle premise.
