This year the county borough of Caerphilly is taking part in Wales' 'Year of Legends', a celebration of the rich and distinctive history and culture that is waiting to be explored...

Discover the myths and legends that made us who we are...

Caerphilly Castle is a legend in its own right, built in the 13th Century and surrounded by myths and legends, this majestic Castle can tell a story or two! We've legends of the TV and big screen along with sporting heroes that have emerged from these South Wales Valleys and are celebrating our legendary Caerphilly Cheese which dates back to the 1800's and became very popular in the 1820's – 1860's.  The Welsh translation 'Caerffili' became a brand and was commercialised during the 1830's and was sold at Caerphilly Market.

We hope you find our website useful and that you'll come to love the borough as much as we do...in the words of Tommy Cooper "Just like that!"
