I am heading to Cardiff this weekend in order to watch the football match Wales against Denmark. Since I am a huge castle buff, I want to visit Caerphilly Castle while we are there. However I am wondering if paying the entrance fee and entering the castle is worth it or if it is mainly for kids?
My friends are not as interested in castles as I am and personally I just want to look at the walls and buildings, I don't really need to have a guide or read any on site information about the castle and I could care less about hedge mazes and watching them fire a trebuchet. So has anyone been and can recommend if it is necessary to pay the entrance fee or if we can get a good look at the castle from the outside?
