Wales has more fairytale castles than it has fairies to occupy them! From coastal ruins to restored splendour, we have so many to choose from.

Close to us is Caerphilly Castle, a 20 minute drive away. Followed by the wonderful Castell Coch (Red Castle), just some 22 minutes along the A470.

Cyfarthfa Castle Park, Museum & Art Gallery

Cyfarthfa Castle Park, Museum & Art Gallery is home to a fantastic collection of artefacts spanning 2000 years of Merthyr's history.

Enjoy the elegant surroundings of this interesting museum and once family home, set in beautiful parkland, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.


Caerphilly Castle

Like the famous cheese, the castle has long been synonymous with Caerphilly. It dominates. Hogs the limelight. Think slumbering giant awaiting a call to arms. It’s also a great backdrop for TV and film. It secured a starring role recently in the popular BBC TV series Merlin.


Castell Coch Castle

While resting on ancient foundations, Castell Coch (Red Castle) is relatively modern, the by-product of a vivid Victorian imagination, assisted by untold wealth. The Middle Ages fascinated the Victorians as much as the Victorians fascinate us today. High Gothic was the order of the day.


Cardiff Castle

Discover 2000 years of history in the heart of the city. From the arrival of the Romans, through the Norman Conquest to lavish Victorian design − all have left their distinctive mark on the Castle.


Raglan Castle

Everything’s great about this place, from its great tower, which evokes memories of earlier fortresses like Caernarfon, to the great gatehouse, which ‘wows’ the visitor just as its owner intended. If, as they say, an Englishman’s home is his castle, then William Herbert’s Raglan is the Welshman’s equivalent.
