Castell Coch is famous for its spectacular interiors. I’ve decided to illustrate the stencils, murals and patterns that decorate Cardiff’s iconic Gothic Revival landmark.
This tile can be found in the fireplace of the drawing room.
This pattern is from the Castell Coch exhibit, which was designed by Glyn Parry-Jones. The exhibit was created in 1987 and remained in use for nearly 30 years.
This embroidered pattern can be found on the padded window seats in the banqueting hall.
This bird is another illustration from the Castell Coch exhibit design by Glyn Parry-Jones.
This finial crowns the kitchen tower. Its design is the heraldic crown for a Marquess and can be found on the Bute’s coat of arms.
