Cardiff Castle is situated in the heart of the Capital. The Castle's enchanting fairytale towers conceal an elaborate and splendid interior. Contained in its mighty walls is a history spanning nearly 2,000 years dating from the coming of the Romans to the Norman Conquest. Visitors can enjoy the splendour of the Castle grounds, with a handheld audioguide in 10 different languages or an alternate children’s tour, and the magnificent scenery of the city from the Norman Keep. Firing Line military museum and the reconstructed Air Raid shelters, a café and gift shop will complete your visit.
