Castle History

Enchanting fairytale towers conceal an elaborate and splendid interior

In the heart of the capital city is Cardiff Castle, a truly remarkable site with a history that spans over 2000 years. Roman soldiers slept here, noble knights held court here, and the Bute family, with extraordinary wealth and vision, transformed the Castle into a romantic Victorian fantasy.

‘Eccentric genius’ architect William Burges was given free rein to create the amazingly lavish and opulent interiors; each breathtaking room rich with murals, stained glass, gilding and superb craftsmanship.

Recent developments include the opening of the Wartime Shelters, an evocative re-creation of a bygone era when the Castle’s tunnels were used as a place of refuge during the Second World War air raids.
