Plan Your Visit 


To help you make the most of your visit to Cardiff Castle, here are some helpful hints.

For a great start to your visit, begin in the Interpretation Centre. See the film and exhibition before collecting your free audio guide and venturing out to explore the grounds, battlements, wartime shelters, Norman Keep and spectacular Victorian apartments. You can also visit Firing Line: Cardiff Castle Museum of the Welsh Soldier which is located here.

If you wish, you can also join a guided tour of the Castle Apartments led by one of our expert guides to see more of the lavish and opulent interiors.

The House Tours run daily on the hour and you can add a House Tour at any time during your visit, just ask at the Ticket Office.

At weekends there are also guided tours of the spectacular Clock Tower. You can get your tickets from the Ticket Office (weekends and bank holidays, April - October).
