Family Fun

There is plenty for children to do when you visit Cardiff Castle. From special events throughout the year and workshops to keep them busy during the holidays to trails around the grounds and through the Apartments.

Follow the Family Trail around the grounds and meet some of the characters that have made Cardiff Castle their home over the centuries. Find the answers to the questions all around the Castle with a little help from Gwen the Celtic Girl, Marcius the Roman Soldier and many more. Be sure to bring an audio guide with you or download the app to hear their stories. Once you have answered all the questions, be sure to check back here and compare your answers!

When you go inside the amazing Castle Apartments, keep an eye out for Banquo the earless dog who will start you off on the Animal Trail. Find his friends all around the house and colour in the pages of the booklet as you go.

Both the Family Trail and Animal Trail booklets can be purchased at the Ticket Office or Gift shop at any time during your visit.
