Cardiff Castle - The Tunnels and Keep


A jaunt to our capital city and we decided to have a look around Cardiff castle. Shamefully in all my years I have never been inside this place for a look around, boy do i wish i had done it sooner!
 The history of this place is so exuberant and over the top that it almost starts to sound like make believe. Trust me its not though. Its this castle that has alot of what we see and do now is in the foundations of this castle (not in a literal sense though)

Here are some of the inner older Roman walls and the newer stone outer skin. These tunnels were used as air raid shelters during the second world war as Cardiff was being bombed by the Luftwaffe.
