Take an ‘insider’ look at this unique Castle started by the
Romans 2,000 years ago where we have our own private
tour. The refurbishments done in the 1800s have been
described as outrageous to opulent, bogus to brilliant and
some even say the architect, William Burgess, smoked his
opium pipe too much! His influences include Arab and
Islamic art, Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales and even
Aesop's fables. In addition, we can walk on the battlements
and climb the 1,000-year-old Norman keep for superb
views over Cardiff.
