Cardiff Castle



“Ah yes, the hills are white with snow…but in the happy vale below, the orange and pomegranate grow…” H. W. Longfellow.

There is something completely enchanting about Cardiff Castle, that makes you feel like you’re entering into a fairy story; bewitching all who visit with its unique history that spans over 2,000 years. The Castle was once a Roman fort, a magnificent Norman Castle and then transformed into a magical Victorian Gothic fantasy palace. This decadent, Victorian dreamworld, was created by ‘eccentric genius’ architect William Burges for the Bute family, with sumptuous interiors super abundant with gilding, detailed wood carvings, murals and stained glass. Cardiff Castle is situated in the heart of Wales’ capital city and was once a place where Roman soldiers slept, and brave knights held court, before it’s metamorphosis into a romantic jewel in Cardiff's crown. A daytime visit includes: exhibition and film presentation, a tour of the outstanding apartments, fabulous walkways, and many other attractions to keep the whole family occupied and dazzled by this precious jewel.
