Roman Weekend

12 - 13

The Romans invade once again with a formidable force and an array of fearsome weapons!


Saturday 12 May: 10am - 5pm

Sunday 13 May: 10am - 2pm

Please Note: That we will be closing earlier than intended on Sunday due to the Cardiff City FC open top bus parade.

Soliders in full authentic costume take over the Castle grounds with an impressive display of their military prowess, with drills and demonstrations of their sophisticated weaponry. Chariot racing for children, themed activites and your chance to Have-a-Go at launching siege weapons are all part of the weekend action.

Cardiff Castle’s Roman past was hidden away and forgotten for centuries. It was the 3rd Marquess of Bute who discovered the remnants of the original walls which encircled the Roman fort established here over 2,000 years ago and which can still be seen today.
