Changes to Opening Hours

Thu, 08 June 2023

From 10 June to 5 August, we are welcoming globally renowned artists to Cardiff Castle as part of the Summer Concert Series. If you are planning to visit during this time, please note that there will be some changes to our regular opening hours on event days.

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