Welcome to CastellCoch.com


I’ve been writing about Castell Coch for about 8 years so I thought it was about time I created a dedicated website for the memorabilia, stories and images that I’ve collected.

I’m going to focus on four main areas of interest to me:


The castle has probably inspired thousands of artists over the years. I’m always looking out for interesting work to feature.


Despite the castle’s Victorian renovation and reputation for being a “modern folly”, it has a long and interesting history.


There are some truly stunning shots of the castle captured by talented professional and amateur photographers. I’m going to find and share the best examples.


Castell Coch is nestled in beautiful Fforest Fawr and overlooks the village of Tongwynlais in Cardiff. The surrounding area has lots to offer so I’ll highlight other places of interest and activities to enjoy.

I hope you enjoy the content I’ve collected so far. I’ve still got lots to share so subscribe and follow me on social media.
