Spring reopening for Cardigan Castle

Date Posted: 13/11/2013

After decades of neglect, 12th century Cardigan Castle in Wales is reopening to the public again in spring 2014.

The castle was left in ruins, but after public campaigning, has been brought back to life and is on course to open to the public next year.

What to look forward to at Cardigan Castle

The castle is set to be a hub for the community as well as educational; a school group visit can enjoy a centre for learning the Welsh language, culture and crafts, as well as discovering horticulture and the surrounding environment.

The east wing of Castle Green House, a Grade II star listed Georgian mansion, is set to be turned into five-star luxury self-catering accommodation, as well as a five-star Gardener’s Cottage for two at the rear of the house.

The south-west side of the site will be home to four-star bed and breakfast accommodation overlooking the river Teifi.

As the birthplace of the Eisteddfod (a Welsh festival), groups can also explore an Eisteddfod garden with a wet-weather dome, an open-air concert area, and a restaurant.
