Welcome to Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle is a unique complex of historical buildings incorporating a medieval castle, Victorian Gothic Mansion and a Norman keep which in turn was built over a Roman fort standing guard over on a cliff above Cardiff. The city itself may have only been there for 100 years, but Cardiff Castle dates back over 2,000 years. Roman soldiers have spent many nights here, knights have spent many a day here while the wealthy Bute family have resided here since the 19th century. Those who visit Cardiff Castle will be rewarded with opulent rooms, Mediterranean gardens and Italian and Arabian décor. Guided tours are available. Family friendly visits are also available to those with young children.
