Cyfarthfa Castle was built in 1824 and is an impressive monument to the Industrial Revolution. Once a Regency mansion, it now houses a magnificent museum and art gallery. The basement atmospherically recalls over 3,000 years of history in this important Welsh town, whilst the restored upper floors are a grand setting for the art displays and the eclectic collections from the ancient world. The castle is set in 160 acres of parkland great for walking or admiring the formal gardens, sweeping lawns and lake. There is also a lovley children's playground and a model railway.
