Jodi a young man full of enthusiasm and great knowledge of Cardiff castle was the tour guide who showed us around.
As a guide he was witty ,charming and incredibly informative.
Paying a little extra for an official tour is well worth doing as not only do you see parts of the castle that you can’t enter if you are just wandering about but you get a whole lot of fascinating information and interesting details that you would otherwise miss.

Two hours is probably just right to spend there and should be on everyone list who visit Cardiff.

If you find you have a few hours to spare and have an interest in local history, military history or architecture visit the castle.

Lots to see and explore but for an extra insight take the tour of the house - the guides are excellent and they will show and tell you far more than you would find on your own.
