Cardiff Castle

Of all the castles in the UK, Cardiff Castle is one of the most amazing and richly complex sites.

SKU: Cardiff Castle Category:

Description

Of all the castles in the UK, Cardiff Castle is one of the most amazing and richly complex sites, with a story that spans over 2,000 years. The Castle you see today, in the heart of the capital city, is at once a Roman fort, an impressive Norman castle and an extraordinary Victorian Gothic fantasy palace, created for one of the world’s richest men.

Roman Fort
The Roman fort at Cardiff was probably established at the end of the 50s AD, on a strategic site that afforded easy access to the sea. Archaeological excavations indicate that this was the first of four forts, each a different size, that occupied the present site. Remains of the Roman wall can be seen today.

Norman Keep
After the Norman conquest, the Castle’s keep was built, re-using the site of the Roman fort. The first keep on the motte, erected by Robert Fitzhamon, Norman Lord of Gloucester, was probably built of wood. Further medieval fortifications and dwellings followed over the years.

Bute Family
The Castle passed through the hands of many noble families until, in 1766, it passed by marriage to the Bute family. The 2nd Marquess of Bute was responsible for turning Cardiff into the world’s greatest coal exporting port. The Castle and Bute fortune passed to his son John, the 3rd Marquess of Bute, who by the 1860s was reputed to be the richest man in the world.

Your tour will include the castle grounds and a tour of the house.

Please allow 2 hours for the tour.

With facilities to educate and entertain all ages, Big Pit is an exciting and informative day out. Enjoy a multimedia tour of a modern coal mine with a virtual miner in the Mining Galleries, exhibitions in the Pithead Baths and Historic colliery buildings.

All this AND the world-famous Underground Tour. Go 300 feet underground with a real miner and see what life was like for the thousands of men who worked at the coal face.

An award-winning national museum that still retains many features of its former life as a coal mine, standing high on the heather-clad moors of Blaenafon, the tunnels and buildings that once echoed to the sound of the miners now enjoy the sound of the footsteps and chatter of visitors from all over the world.

Learn about the semi artificial Desso pitch system and fully retractable roof, which allows the entire playing surface to be covered to create one of the world’s largest indoor arenas. Take in the view of the pitch from a VIP hospitality suite, and finally lift the trophy to the skies like a sporting superstar in the President’s Box, an area normally reserved for royalty.
