Traveling to Caerphilly from Cardiff will just take you just under an hour by train, allowing you to arrive feeling cool and collected.
With the first departure at 0600 and the last at around 2230, there’s plenty of choice, and you can save money by planning ahead and using our Multiflex tickets.
Sitting at the southern end of the beautiful Rhymney Valley, Caerphilly is a town developed over the centuries from a Roman stronghold. Jam-packed with fun, family activities and places to see, whether you’re visiting on business, or looking forward to a day out, Caerphilly has something to suit.
Swathed in historical importance, Caerphilly Castle is a great place to start, and Transport for Wales has 2-for-1 deals on visiting this ancient monument. Covering a total of 30 acres (three times the size of the Principality Stadium in Cardiff!), this impressive site has served many purposes over the centuries, from formidable fortress to fairy-tale palace. Only Windsor Castle in England can beat it for scale and sheer grandeur!
For some great kid-friendly activities, visit Funtastic. With the focus on fun and adventure, there’s all manner interactive toys and games for every age, including, for the big kids, go-karting and laser tag!
Around the town itself, the undulating landscape, and dark, shady Cymcarn Forest lend themselves to a demanding mountain bike challenge, or if you prefer, a relaxing stroll. There’s nothing better on a summer’s day than pausing by the trickling brook, listening to the birds, and laying out a small picnic!
If shopping is your thing, Caerphilly has that covered, too, with high street brands, and quaint boutiques showcasing hand made jewellery, knitwear, and delicious homemade Welsh fudge.
With just a click, you can reserve early and enjoy cheaper tickets, and if you’re traveling with friends and family, we offer group discounts. Book through the app and enjoy Caerphilly.
