Cardiff Castle is one of Wales' leading tourist attractions. Situated in the very heart of the capital, alongside city centre shopping and the magnificent Bute Park, the Castle's enchanting fairytale towers conceal an elaborate and splendid interior.
Steeped in history and full of wildlife and horticultural features, Bute Park is a magical place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The park is listed along with Cardiff Castle, as a Grade One historic designed landscape and also contains the Blackfriars site, a scheduled ancient monument.
The City Parish of St John the Baptist is among the oldest in Cardiff. The church is next to the city centre's covered market and is the oldest remaining mediaeval building in the city after Cardiff Castle, dating from the 12th century.
