Ce vei face

We will meet each other at the bottom of the drawbridge, and I will walk and talk you around the outside of the castle, including the history of the original castle which stood on the site.

We will go into the castle and tour, looking at the courtyard, the banqueting hall, the Drawing Room, the winch room, Lord Bute's bedroom, Lady Bute's bedroom, the secret stairs, the kitchen, Lady Bute's bedroom and balcony, and the exhibitions.

If you are interested in the wildlife which lives in and around the castle, we can talk about that as well. - the woodland around the castle in a Site of Special Scientific Interest which supports a wide variety of animals, birds and plants.

The tour is unique as the information I include is not in the guide book or the official tour. It is also tailored to your interests, and you are free to ask questions throughout. The tour will take 1 -2 hours, depending on how many questions you ask. The castle is very beautiful, and the people who built it were quite out of the ordinary.

At the end of the tour we can visit the castle tea room for a hot drink and a cake (additional cost), and/or you can also pick up an pod catcher (free of charge) and do the official tour of the castle (allow another hour) .
Other things to note
The castle has free car parking.

You can catch a train to Taff's Well railway station, which about 20 minutes walk away, or you can catch a bus to the Lewis Arms bus stop in Tongwynlais, which is about 10-15 minutes walk away. The castle drive is several hundred yards long, and a pretty big hill.

I have been researching the castle's decoration since 2016, & also learning about the lives of the people who had the castle built - Lord and Lady Bute & their good friend & amazing, eccentric architect, designer and artist William Burges.

All the decoration is related to one of Lord Bute's passions - family; Nature; religion; astronomy & astrology; and the medieval period.

I have been giving guided tours of the castle to small groups of people, explaining the decoration & its meanings in each room, since 2016.

I recently wrote an article, which was published in the winter 2019 issue of Heritage in Wales (Cadw's membership magazine), outlining the research I have been doing, and the meanings of the decoration in the Drawing Room. You will never find the 50 “green men” in the castle without me!!!
