Welcome to Visit Caerphilly

The County Borough of Caerphilly, in the heart of Southern Wales.

Located just north of Cardiff, Wales' Capital City, Caerphilly County Borough offers stunning landscapes, countryside and heritage.... with outdoor activity aplenty.

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!"
