The Castle you see today, in the heart of the 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. The lavish decoration in the Castle Apartments is simply breath-taking.

The view from the top of the medieval Keep is spectacular and you can explore the atmospheric Wartime Shelters and grounds with a free audio guide. Don’t miss Firing Line: Cardiff Castle Museum of the Welsh Soldier and leave time to relax on the café terrace to soak up the atmosphere of this amazing site.
