Essential Caerphilly: Explore the town’s history on a self-guided GPS audio tour
Wales, United Kingdom
Take a self-guided GPS walk with local resident Suzie Rees and find out more about the fascinating history of the town surrounding the famous castle.
Starting at Coffi Vista on the Twyn, you'll walk the streets of Caerphilly while Suzie takes you back to the past. On the way, you'll meet kings and lovers, tyrants, comedians, musicians and one of the most eccentric people ever to live in this famous town. You'll visit the oldest building in Caerphilly, take a walk through glorious parkland and, if you feel like it, you can also stop to feed the geese and ducks who are always happy to say hello.
The final leg of your tour takes you in full view of the largest castle in Wales while telling you some of the stories and legends connected with it. The final stop takes you right up to the main entrance to the castle and the tour finishes with a story about the most remarkable Welshman in Victorian Britain.
