I missed Wales and that’s true, I used to live in Swansea for 9 years so now and again I visit my friends and previous colleagues. This time im visiting my friend Claire in Cardiff. Every time I visited her we usually go for a day out with her girls.Today I suggested Caerphilly Castle its a great time to visit, theres a medieval events for two day over the weekend. We didn’t waste anytime we drove off to Caerphilly just after lunch, the traffic near the town centre is quite busy. We thought the castle would be so crowded considering its weekend. We found a parking area just across the road to the castle its very handy and the ticket is cheap too its only £1.20 for 4 hours its a bargain.
We walked across the road and the granduer of the castle facades welcomed us and what a beautiful sunny day. Even though its sunny its still chilly and cold, hats gloves and scarf comes to fashionable accessories and kept us warm. We paid our castle entry ticket for £5.50 p/a and the kids are free.
As soon as we got through the wooden gate, we were greeted by the crowd. Curiosity strike so we joined the crowds and soon we found out its a fire juggler reformer. It was very impressive and kids enjoyed the performance. Then we moved to the nearest tent where they showcased a Victorian Games.
After the jugglers performance we crossed the bridge and enter the main castle grounds. There’s another medieval show it’s a ferret race it was fun watching it, the kids were shouting for their favourite ferret to win, while the kids enjoying the race, I went around the castle and went for a wander.
Went to the main hall there’s Santa Clause and kids making their wishes and a couple of local products being sold.
And then went around everyroom in the castle. There was also a group of people making Christmas Wreath in one room.
It’s just about 4pm but the sun was setting off, I took the opportunity for my Sunset Photography. The Castle with the sunset at the background was just magical.
After I snapped loads of photos we walked towards the Caerphilly Centre where there are different stalls selling christmas gifts and food.
A cool day out and truly unique experince for the kids they enjoyed. Thanks to my friend Claire and the beautiful girls Zarah Clarice, Reyna and Chantell for a wonderful day in Caerphilly. It’s good to be back even just for couple of days.
