Cardiff Castle is a medieval castle and Victorian Gothic revival mansion located in the city centre of Cardiff, Wales. The original motte and bailey castle was built in the late 11th century by Norman invaders on top of a 3rd-century Roman fort. Cardiff Castle is really worth a visit. I love visiting historical sites, so this was on my list when I knew I was visiting Cardiff. My friend and I were given complimentary entrance tickets which included an audio tour. This we did not take up, as we just decided to walk around and see things at our own pace.
The castle is in the city centre and it was surprising easy to find. We had some lunch, then headed towards the Norman Keep. This you can climb to the top, I did go to the first level.
But is was far to steep for me to continue further and with my vertigo, I came back down. We then went to the Wartime Shelters.
Then as it was such a lovely day, we walked around the Roman Wars, taking in such a lovely place to be.
We then visited the Castle Apartments, just look at this ceiling.
And my favourite room in most places is the Library, I just love them !
