Castle Coch Just a few miles north of the city very near the village of tongwynlais, there is a castle straight out of a fairytale but was built from the ruins of a medieval castle. It is located high on cliffs settled amid woodland. Now maintaoined by CADW (Welsh Historical Monuments).

Llandaff Cathedral Standing on one of the oldest Christian sites in Britain. It was in the 6th century when St Dyfrig founded a community close to where the Roman road crossed the River Taff. The present cathedral itself dates back to 1107AD. We strongly recommend the Llandaff Ghost Walk which has been featured in the "Top Ten Things To Do For Under A Tenner" by Essential Travel Magazine.
Cricket fans in Cardiff are well catered for with the recently built Swalec Stadium in Sophia Gardens - named after Sophia, the wife of the Marquess of Bute, who owned the land in the 19th century.
