Caerphilly Castle

Caerphilly is home to a wide choice of attractions including the second largest castle in Britain, Caerphilly Castle which dates from the 13th Century and Llancaiach Fawr which is a beautifully preserved 16th century mansion filled with exhibits and displays. The woodland around Caerphilly is also famously scenic and is managed by the Caephilly Woodlands Trust. Enjoy discovering ancient fossils and beautiful waterfalls or spot the varied wildlife at Coed y Werin. Caerphilly is also famous for its cheese and you can sample this at the Big Cheese festival in July. In Winter, the town hosts the River of Light Parade which is a night time lantern parade and fireworks display over the Castle.

Caerphilly is set just a short drive from the M4 and there are several budget hotels in the town which are ideal if you are planning an overnight stay or even using Caerphilly as a base while visiting its larger neighbour of Cardiff. There is also a choice of pet and family friendly holiday cottages or tour the area with campervans for hire in nearby Blackwood.
