Castle Street, Cardiff, United Kingdom, CF10 3RB
This legendary 11th-century castle sits in the heart of Cardiff, engulfed by the blissful meadows of Bute Park. Interspersed with elements of Gothic revival and Victorian architecture, this impressive Welsh landmark is steeped in nearly 2000 years of history. Exuding immense gravitas still, the Cardiff Castle was initially a Norman-era motte-and-bailey castle that transformed into a stone-built entity in the 12th Century, most likely at the behest of the 1st Earl of Gloucester. Its time-honored walls have been testament to years of conflict, but conceal within grandiose alterations that the third Marquess of Bute brought about, with help from renowned architect William Burges.
