Cardiff Castle, Cardiff: 60 reviews and 153 photos


Visit the Welsh Regiment Museum in Cardiff Castle.
This is a very easy to miss museum right within the gatehouse of Cardiff Castle. Even if you have no interest in military history this a great place to pop in for a quick visit. The curator and staff are very willing to answer any questions that you have and describe each display in detail. The Welsh regiment is a telling history of the British Empire. They have been engaged in just about every famous battle that you can think of. From the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo to wars of the modern age, this regiment has been there. For visitors from the North America there is a great display in the War of 1812. The Welsh Regiment fought at Detroit, Quebec, Lundy's Lane, and Put-In-Bay on Lake Erie. It is real interesting to read the descriptions in the museum, which refer to the United States as the enemy. I had quite a laugh about this with one of the museum's experts. The picture is of the castle gate, which is drawn up within the museum. I caught my son peering through it.

Address: Right the Cardiff Castle gatehouse.
Directions: Next to the Civic Centre and Shopping Arcades
