Caerphilly Castle

Living in Wales definitely has its advantages. There are so many places to visit and things to see. Caerphilly Castle is just one of many castles we have and it’s the 2nd largest castle in Britain.


The kids and I popped in to see the dragons and spent a good part of the day wandering around the castle grounds and picnicking on the grass inside the castle walls. 

The kids loved climbing the spiral staircases to the top of the castle and looking out the arrow holes (I’m sure they have technical names!)

Inside the castle there were many sculptures and objects to look at. The kids particularly liked this head sculpture. 

The castle has elaborate water defences which make up a very picturesque moat.
