A STORY OF UPRISING, BETRAYAL AND MURDER

The revolt of Llywelyn Bren – 1316

Discover the Black Tower Tales here at Cardiff Castle, an exciting new experience re-telling the story of Llywelyn Bren, a forgotten hero of medieval Welsh history.

In the 14th century, Llewelyn and his followers led a brave rebellion against the oppressive Sheriff of Glamorgan. They fought hard but the rebellion ultimately failed and Llewelyn would pay with his life. He was wrongfully imprisoned and murdered in the very same Black Tower where you will hear this chilling tale.

Meet the ghosts of long ago as this immersive attraction brings history to life in a way you won’t soon forget. Bookings are available now from the Castle’s ticket office, please ask for more details.
