Tickets & Tour

Welcome to Cardiff Castle. The impressive site you see today, in the heart of Wales' capital city, is at once a Roman fort, a Norman stronghold and a Victorian Gothic fantasy palace. We invite you to come inside and piece together over 2000 years of fascinating history from Cardiff's earliest settlement, right up to the second world war and beyond.

The House Tour

Take a House Tour for just £3.35!

For a small charge you can follow in the footsteps of the Bute family, accompanying one of our expert guides on a fascinating and informative tour of the spectacular Victorian living quarters. The tour lasts for approx. 50 minutes and is essential if you're looking to delve a little deeper in to the history of this amazing building.

As well as taking in the Arab Room, Banqueting Hall, Small Dining Room and Library, your guide will lead you through a selection of rooms which are not open as part of the Castle Ticket. These rooms, including The Winter Smoking Room, Nursery, Sitting Room, Lord Bute's Bedroom and The Rooftop Garden, contain some of the most stunning and opulent interiors in the whole Castle.
