Cardiff Castle occupies an elevated position right in the centre of the city. Its origins date back to the year AD55 when it was built as a defensive structure by the Roman Army. It was rebuilt by the Normans in 1091 and was subsequently used as the family home of several notable families including the Marquees of Bute, who once claimed to be the richest family in the world. It was finally rebuilt during the 19th century and most of what is present today is from the Victorian period. The castle is now owned by Cardiff County Council and it plays host to numerous events throughout the year. Facilities include a gift shop and café and it is fully accessible by wheelchair users and visitors with pushchairs. Opening times and admission prices can be found on the website.
