A fairytale wedding venue in the heart of Cardiff.
Cardiff Castle's enchanting fairytale towers conceal elaborate and splendid interiors of unique architecture, magnificent décor and breath-taking elegance. Several of these remarkable rooms are available for hire - perfect for weddings, corporate gatherings, gala dinners, private parties, business meetings, hospitality and entertainment of all kinds. The splendid grounds also provide the perfect setting for your wedding photographs.
The Banqueting Hall (Capacity – 100 guests).
This magnificent hall is the largest and one of the most impressive rooms in the Castle and was used by the Bute family for grand entertaining. With high ceilings and atmospheric lighting, this room provides a spectacular setting for your celebrations. There is also the option of a drinks reception in The Library.
The Library (Capacity – 70 guests in Library, 100 guests in Library and Drawing Room combined)
An impressive and lavishly decorated interior, the library is the perfect venue for a drinks reception. Complete with all its original furnishings, this room can be used in conjunction with the Drawing Room, or the Banqueting Hall which can reached by your guests via the magnificent Octagon Staircase.
The Drawing Room (Capacity – 50 guests)
An elegant contrast to the highly ornate Burges' interiors, the Georgian Drawing Room dates from the 1770s and is light and spacious with magnificent views of the Castle Grounds and Norman Keep. This is a beautiful room for a wedding ceremony and can be used in conjunction with the Library for a drinks reception
The Undercroft (Capacity – 100 guests)
Dating from the 15th century, the Undercroft is one of the oldest parts of the Castle. Decorated with hanging banners and drapes, the stone-vaulted Undercroft is hugely atmospheric and has its own private bar and reception area. The Undercroft is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
The Guest Tower Rooms (Capacity – 30 guests)
Once made available only to the closest friends and guests of Lord Bute, the Guest Tower Rooms is an exclusive self-contained suite which offers magnificent views of the Norman Keep and Castle Grounds. Ceremonies and Wedding Breakfasts are held in The Walnut Room with Drinks Receptions available in The Oak Room. Due to the many steps within Cardiff Castle, the Guest Tower Rooms are not suitable for wheelchair users or guests with mobility difficulties.
The Interpretation Centre (Capacity – 150 guests)
The contemporary Interpretation Centre at the heart of this historic site can easily be adapted to accommodate your evening reception with plenty of room for dancing. The smart, sophisticated and minimalist interiors are a bold statement, with the original exposed Roman wall a focal point of the ground floor. The concertina doors on this floor can also be opened up onto the terrace outside where guests can enjoy a drinks reception or informal barbecue with unparalleled views of the Castle Keep and grounds. All floors of the Interpretation Centre are fully accessible for wheelchair users.
