Things to do in Caerphilly

Most people only know Caerphilly for its castle, but I am sure there is much more to the town and borough than meets the eye.

What would make your personal 'Things to Do and See' list for Caerphilly Borough?

cheers

purple :-)

Cheers Mendip! I love Llancaiach Fawr and so do the kids.

Is there still a golf driving range on the outskirts of Caerphilly?

Perhaps you could spend some time looking for an environmentally friendly cheese shop that does not go against your new 'green' resolutions for 2011??

Haha EW are you referring to my thread from last month that just got reported by someone as inappropriate and susequently pulled?

It would be lovely to see more than 3 'things to do' listed on Tripadvisor for Caerphilly. I recently got Llancaiach Fawr included on this page but hopefully more will get listed in time. It looked a bit sorry with only the castle and the tourist information office here!

NO! Of course not - would I do such a thing?? - OH no, not I!!

I was referring to your caerphilly cheesemakers thread of course!!

(and if you believe that, you will believe anything)

Of course, while you are at it, you could look for a cardigan shop as well, perhaps one that has no heating and uses only organic and humanely produced woollen items??

Thanks Mendip. I have always wanted to give the driving range a try.
