A Roman Garrison, a Norman Stronghold, a Gothic Fantasy!
The Castle is yours to explore ...
Of all the castles in the UK, Cardiff Castle is one of the most amazing and richly complex sites, with a story that spans over 2,000 years.
The Castle you see today, in the heart of the capital city, is at once a Roman fort, an impressive Norman castle and an extraordinary Victorian Gothic fantasy palace, created for one of the world’s richest men.
For the ultimate Victorian medieval dream world, see the spectacular fairytale apartments, rich with murals, gilding and elaborate wood carvings, stained glass and marble, created by art-architect William Burges for the 3rd Marquess of Bute. With the exposed Roman Wall to view, the medieval Keep to climb and the atmospheric Wartime Shelters to explore, make sure you allow plenty of time for your visit.
