Attraction Information

If you love your historic buildings, you’ll definitely enjoy a day at Cardigan Castle! The attraction is comprised of a restored medieval castle, Georgian house and 2 acres of landscaped grounds. Situated in a picturesque riverside location, the castle is a beautiful place to enjoy a day out.

Fun fact: Cardigan Castle is the birthplace of National Eisteddfod. There are loads more where this came from! With 900 years of history to be discovered at the castle, your kids will learn many fascinating stories from the past. Who knows, by the end of the day, history may have climbed to the top of their favourite school subjects’ list!

Once you’re done exploring the castle, it’s time to go outside and enjoy the stunning castle grounds. There are lots to do for the younger visitors: from interactive games, including dress-up, to adventure trails and an on-site play area.
