These pages are designed to support an educational visit and give an historical context to the 2,000 years of Cardiff Castle's history.

You and your class can get to know the Castle characters who will take you on a trip through time. When you visit the Castle you can listen to them on the Children’s Audio Guide or follow them on the Family Trail.

Click through history to find out how people lived during the different time periods, or view the timeline to see what the Castle looked like and what was happening in Cardiff at the time.

Use these pages to prepare for your visit or for follow-up work in the classroom.

Find out more about arranging an educational visit to the castle, special educational activities and cross curricular links.

We hope you and your class enjoy time travelling with us!
