What’s On & Tickets

Located in the heart of the Welsh capital, medieval Cardiff Castle is one of the UK’s most famous historic sites with a richly complex history.

The original motte and bailey castle was built in the late 11th century by Norman invaders on top of a pre-existing 3rd century Roman fort. Needless to say, Cardiff Castle will provide a spectacular setting for an evening of open air cinema this summer.
