Castle Street Cardiff CF10 3RB
Set fair in the very heart of the city, Cardiff Castle offers welcome respite from the surrounding bustle. Over the course of time it has variously posed as a Roman fort, military garrison and long-term residence for a succession of wealthy families, notably the influential Bute dynasty. Although entry doesn’t come cheap, there’s much to absorb once inside the extensive grounds, from the gripping Firing Line exhibition to the Norman Keep, battlements and wartime tunnels. An upgrade to a premium ticket gets you on to a guided tour of the lavish Castle Apartments. Once back outside, don’t miss the cheeky-looking stone creatures lining the exterior wall.
