Caerphilly Castle is the largest castle in Wales, the second largest castle in Britain and also one of the largest fortresses in Europe. The castle was built by Gilbert de Clare, the Marcher Lord, to defend his lands from the Welsh Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. The castle was largely completed in 4 short years between 1267 and 1271. Concentrically planned, the rings of stone and water defences are formidable even today. Famous for its 'leaning tower'. The impressive great hall is now used for various functions. Caerphilly Castle's Great Hall is available for hire. You can organize an unusual and majestic event in one of Europe's most impressive medieval castle.
