The duration of an average visit, not including a guided tour, is recommended at approximately 90 mins, so it is still possible to enjoy the Castle’s full range of attractions.

Tickets for the affected days are available to book online, clearly marked as early closures; or from the Castle’s Ticket Office, where a member of staff will be happy to answer any questions.

Please note that the Castle will be fully closed to visitors during both days of the Pride Cymru weekend and for DEPOT in the Castle.

If you would like to attend this year’s Summer Concert Series, any remaining tickets can be purchased by visiting Pride Cymru tickets can be booked at

If you have any queries concerning attendance at the summer concerts, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions.


In preparation for the 2024 Summer Concert Series, installation of staging and other associated infrastructure will commence from Wed 29 May.

This will remain in place until clearance of the site is completed, approximately two weeks following the final show on Sat 27 July.

During this time, both the Public Square on the Castle’s Outer Green and the North Gate entrance from Bute Park will be closed.

However, we do still encourage members of the public to access the Castle’s Visitor Centre, free of charge, where you will find the city’s Visitor Information Point, the Castle Café & Bar, and our Gift Shop.
