A Day in Cardiff

Some time to explore Cardiff in anticipation of Offa’s Dyke. A visit to Llandaff Cathedral, unfortunately damaged during World War II, a visit to the National Museum Of Welsh Life at St. Fagan finished with a visit to Cardiff Castle.

All very busy in view of the upcoming Easter weekend and associated school breaks.

The castle was a highlight as it is built on Roman foundations, includes a Norman motte and bailey castle and Elizabethan manor house redone in high Victorian style by one of the richest men of his era. (The Marquess of Bute owned much of the coal in Wales including the means of getting it to market.)
