A Day Out At Cardiff Castle, Wales

07 Feb 2020

A look around Cardiff Castle which is situated in the heart of the city of Cardiff, the capital of #Wales.
The castle sits on a Roman fortress dating back to AD50, the Normans then occupied the site. The original twelve sided Norman keep can be reached top the 50 steps.

The castle apartments are a Victorian Gothic fantasy palace, created by William Burges for the 3rd Marquess of Bute, one of the world’s richest men.

Having a look around the ornate themed rooms, the Arab room, the Banqueting room and the library.

After being dragged around Welsh castles over the summer Mrs W decided to take a trip in Cardiff City centre for a bit of shopping. (Cardiff has an excellent shopping centre and really interesting Victorian Arcades with lots of independent shops).

At the time of our visit, the entry prices for Cardiff Castle were £12 for adults and £9 for kids. There is also a tour of the ornate apartments and the work of William Burges which is an additional £3.

If you are visiting the UK, Cardiff is definitely worth a visit and it’s only 2 hours from London.
