“Nice Place to Visit”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

As a residients of Cardiff we have Cardiff Castle Key Cards, this gives us free admission at most times and to some events. It is well worth a visit especially on a nice day, as it is a sun trap. Over the years there have been many additions and improvements. The castle is well kept Itis situated not far from Bute Park where you can walk round the outside of the castle, the moat at the rear is still full of water where the rest are dry. Just to add the park is lovely and a nice place to take a picnik for a day out

“Amazing!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the castle. We saw the Norman keep, Roman walls, wartime tunnel but the best of all was the amazing house with its painted wood walls and ceiling in the Victorian Gothic style. I would thoroughly recommend, don't visit Cardiff without going here.
