Caerphilly Tourist Information

The county of Caerphilly lies in the heart of South Wales in the Rhymney Valley, it is bordered by Powys, Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen, Newport, Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, and Merthyr Tydfil.

The counties main and largest town is Caerphilly. Other towns in the county include Bargoed, Bedwas, Blackwood, Newbridge, New Tredegar, Rhymney, Risca and last but not least Ystrad Mynach.

As a county, Caerphilly is very easy to reach by road. The A465 (Heads of the Valley's road) passes across the North of the county, the A470 road travels alongside the West of the County and the A4042 travels alongside the East of the county, whilst the M4 Motorway passes the South of Caerphilly. There are plenty of bus routes which offer access to the towns and villages in Caerphilly, as well as Cardiff, Newport and Merthyr Tydfil. Caerphilly also has several train stations dotted along the Rhymney Line all provide regular, quick and easy access to central Cardiff.

Geographically, the county of Caerphilly is well placed for exploring South Wales, the North of the county borders the breathtakingly beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. To the Southwest, the county of Caerphilly is bordered by Cardiff, Wales' largest and capital city which boasts the best shopping destination in Wales with its vast array of shops.

Located on the far West side of Caerphilly on the edge of the village of Nelson is Llancaiach Fawr Manor, once the home of Colonel Edward Prichard, it's a fabulous semi-fortified Tudor manor house. Today, visitors will find the house has been restored and furnished as it would have been in 1645 and the staff are dressed in period costumes of the era.

The town of Caerphilly is home to Caerphilly Castle, the largest castle in Wales and the second largest castle in Europe. This mighty brute of a fortress is surrounded by a series of moats and watery islands, whilst inside visitors will find lots of rooms to wander around, it is also renowned for its 'Leaning Tower'. Visitors who make their way to the top of the castle will be greeted with outstanding views across Caerphilly and the surrounding area.

To the East of the county lies Cwmcarn Forest, it is ideally suited to the 'outdoorsy' type. Apart from flora and fauna, the forest has a selection of walking trails of varying distances and a number of mountain bike trails which are perfect for showing off your mountain bike skills. For anglers, the forest has a one-acre lake with stocks of brown trout along with carp, tench and bream.

The town of Caerphilly which is synonymous with a famous cheese (just can't think of its name offhand) plays host to an annual festival called The Big Cheese®. This is a free entry festival where thousands upon thousands of visitors are treated to an extravaganza of street entertainers, living history encampments, music, dance, a traditional funfair, folk dancing, falconry, fire eating, minstrels, troubadours and much more!
