Caerphilly Town Information

Historic and atmospheric, this Welsh town is most famous for the manufacture of crumbly cheese, yet its most impressive attraction is a huge moated castle dating to the 13th century; it covers no less than 30 acres and has a ‘leaning’ tower caused by an ill-fated attempt to blow it to smithereens during the Civil War.
