Important COVID-19 Updates

We would like to thank everybody for your continued support and understanding during these very difficult circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible, in the meantime we hope that you all stay safe and healthy, best wishes from the entire team at Cardiff Castle.

Cardiff Castle Closure

Following the Government advice for public spaces, Cardiff Castle will now be closed until further notice. All pre-booked ticket holders will be refunded as swiftly as possible.

Sincere apologies to all for any inconvenience caused but, as we're sure you'll agree, the health and wellbeing of visitors and staff must be our main priority.

We will publish any further updates both here and on our social media accounts, as and when they become available.

If you do have any questions then please contact us via email here:

Cardiff Castle Events

Although we are unaware how long the Castle will be required to stay closed for, we have decided to cancel all our scheduled events until early May. For later events, we will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions in keeping with the latest developments.

All ticket holders for Castle events will be refunded via Ticket Source as soon as possible. Usually this would take a few working days, however, there may be some delay due to the high volume of event cancellations being experienced at this time.

The list of events that have been cancelled or postponed is as follows:

  • Underground Cinema - Cardiff Animation Festival
  • Underground Cinema - Fight Club
  • 2020 Lecture Series - Cardiff's Edwardian Buildings
  • Comedy at the Castle
  • 2020 Lecture Series - Cardiff's Great Exhibition
  • Open Air Theatre - Macbeth (Postponed to summer 2021)


External events (e.g. the summer concerts) being held at the Castle may, or may not be cancelled in the days to come. We will keep you informed as soon as we hear any news from the organisers of these events. Should any cancellations occur then please contact your ticket provider for further information.
