Caerphilly Castle, Caerphilly


  • Located in Caerphilly, Caerphilly, South & Mid Wales, Wales
  • Caerphilly Castle, Caerphilly CF83 1JD
  • The largest castle in Wales, Caerphilly Castle was built in the latter half of the thirteenth century
  • The leaning south-east tower is a result of damage done to the castle in 1648 by Parliamentary forces in the English Civil War
  • In the centuries after the Civil War, buildings were constructed against the castle walls. The Marquesses of Bute subsequently cleared these buildings to restore the castle*
  • Four replica siege engines are on display within the castle grounds
  • If castles are of interest, in the local area we'd recommend visiting Castell Coch and Cardiff Castle. A little further away, try Raglan Castle.
