Spot the Welsh Dragons at London Kings Cross station

Our much loved Cadw Dragons, Dewi and Dwynwen, are visiting London Kings Cross railway station on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 November as part of the Visit Wales Year of Legends campaign.

Using AR (augmented reality) technology, early morning commuters will be surprised to see the virtual Dragons, which appear to trample over castle turrets and fly around the busy station. The virtual Dragons are based on the hugely popular ‘real-life’ installations that can be found inside Caerphilly Castle in south Wales. 

Created by the Welsh Government’s historic environment service (Cadw), the Dragons first captured public attention when one-tonne “Dewi the Dragon” was spotted on the banks of Caerphilly Castle’s moat on St David’s Day 2016. Cadw went on to introduce “mam” Dwynwen and Dragon Babies, Dylan and Cariad, this year — leading to the heritage body’s best summer since records began.  

Meanwhile, visitors to Wales can meet the real-life Cadw Dragons at Caerphilly Castle. Visit gov.wales/cadw for site opening times and information.
