Caerphilly Castle

Castle Street, Caerphilly, CF83 1JD

The grand atmosphere of the Great Hall creates a splendid venue for a very special occasion. The Great Hall annexe is fitted with modern kitchen facilities and a bar area. The sophisticated ambient lighting system casts a soft glow over the hall, highlighting the ornate tracery of the windows and medieval stonework.

    Excellent facilities and very high level of service provided.The registry service, reception and post-wedding party are all held in the same function room, which is promptly cleared and re-set as required. The Castle makes a fantastic ‘historic’ wedding photo backdrop. Yes the Castle is open to the public up until early evening, but we are not talking hundreds of people getting in the way. A lovely and unique way to start married life. (Trip Advisor)

    Lovely †Wedding‡ Setting,
    we had the privilege to attend our son and daughter-in-laws wedding here. the setting was immense. the castle and grounds made a picturesque setting for the photographs. the comments we had about the location was numerous on the day

    it is lovely place to visit just to walk around the castle and is dog friendly. it has a tower that leans more than the tower of pisa i believe, and is unsupported.
