Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle is one of Wales’ leading heritage attractions and a site of international significance.

Located at the heart of the capital, within beautiful parklands, the Castle’s walls and fairy tale towers conceal 2,000 years of history.

Situated as they are, side by side, it is perhaps no surprise that Cardiff Castle and Bute Park share a common history. Cardiff’s Grade 1 listed ‘green lung’ is now a much loved public park but was once the Castle’s private pleasure garden, created for the third Marquess of Bute.
