    Details

    Caerphilly is principally known for its cheese and its castle. Although either of these two emblems of Welsh culture would merit a trip to the town in themselves there are a host of other exceptional reasons to visit Caerphilly.
    Caerphilly Castle is by no means the only historical site in town however as there are a number of other attractions perfect for those who want to know a little bit more about Caerphilly. The Aber Valley Heritage Project is a volunteer run museum open to the public that gives an insight into the ancient and industrial past of the community, whilst the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre has recently been refurbished. Ruperra Castle provides a slightly less dramatic companion to Caerphilly Castle and nearby Llancaiach Fawr Manor offers a glimpse into the working life of a 16th century Manor. Nature lovers will enjoy the tranquillity of Coed-y-Wenin and Parc Penallta. Caerphilly also has plenty of contemporary attractions with a number of luxury spa centres, golf clubs and even a climbing centre.
