We visited Cyfartha Castle with our children (4yrs and 7yrs). I used to come here as a child when we visited family in Wales, so it was lovely to see how it had changed. Fabulous playground, paths to walk the park, and of course the castle itself. We could have spent all day here, but sadly only had a couple... More

Lovely place to visit when the weather is nice. The splash pad for kids is brilliant and overall Cyfarthfa itself is a treasure to have in Merthyr Tydfil.

Me my partner and 4 of our children came here on Mother's Day. None of us had been before but I fancied a look. I'm so glad we did. Our youngest (22 months) loved the pond with the ducks geese and swans. The grounds are beautiful. We went to the park and the kids (22 months up to 17) all... More

We have been to the Castle many times over the years and its a great open space to walk around with lovely views over the hills. On our most recent visit, however we found the cafe was closed and we were unable to access the Castle itself. This is in part due the building and restoration work going on there... More

Reading about the history of the place was very interesting and it took me a good 90 minutes to 2 hours to see everything in the exhibition. The grounds are beautiful and the staff helpful and friendly. There's a small Café which... More
