The ruined stone Norman Keep of Cardiff Castle stands on the earlier motte. The keep is a focal point within the castle. The fifth Marquis of Bute gave the Castle to the people of Cardiff in 1947. Now with the County Council as custodians the castle is open to the public daily. What is generally known as Cardiff Castle is actually a Victorian gentleman's version of a medieval Castle. It is a mock Castle. But the keep is the true Cardiff Castle. Built in the 12th century the 12 sided keep survives in good condition and stands proudly on it's motte or small hill within the walls of what is now known as Cardiff Castle.
