Cyfarthfa Castle Museum and Art Gallery is located in the historical town of Merthyr Tydfil, which established itself as the Iron Capital of the World in the 18th Century with its huge Iron-Works complexes.

Cyfarthfa Castle is situated in 160 acres of parkland with formal gardens, a lake, children’s play area and a model railway. The castle was built in 1824 during the industrial revolution, and in 1910 opened its doors to the public, hosting a spectacular museum and art gallery. Visitors can see a range of art displays and eclectic collections from the ancient world, including Egyptian grave goods, Greek and Roman artefacts and Far Eastern decorative arts.

Cyfarthfa Castle is a great day out, set on the edge of the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park, with a tearoom offering delicious food, and an outdoor seating area, which is perfect for relaxing in the summer months.
