Tucked away in the lush greenery of the Welsh countryside, Castell Coch (Red Castle) is a magnificent Gothic Revival castle.

Visitors to the castle can explore the opulent interiors, complete with intricately carved woodwork, ornate ceilings, and beautiful stained glass windows.

Located just a few miles from the bustling city of Cardiff, Castell Coch has a fascinating history that spans over 700 years. Originally built in the 13th century, the castle was extensively remodelled by the third Marquess of Bute in the late 19th century, who spared no expense in creating a luxurious and atmospheric residence.

Today, visitors can marvel at the intricate details of the castle's architecture, as well as its beautiful landscaped gardens and stunning views of the surrounding Welsh countryside.
