Cardiff Castle is one of the Welsh capital's most popular tourist attractions, and gives a fabulous overview of Cardiff's history. Rather than being one complete castle, Cardiff Castle is actually made up of several castles, which have been built throughout the ages. Behind the walls that separate the castle from the city centre, can be found a Roman fort, a Norman castle, and a Gothic Victorian mansion. The buildings and grounds are fun for visitors of all ages to explore, but the castle also hosts a range of events throughout the year, which make visits all the more exciting. These include jousting events, a Mardi Gras, balls and live concerts from the likes of Tom Jones and Green Day.
