Well from the broken down ruins to a Victorian folly. In fact quite a bit of research was done and the exterior of the reconstructed castle is quite faithful to the original design. The only debateable point is the roofs.
Castell Coch is only just off the M4 motorway just north of Cardiff, perched on the side of a hill
An impressive entrance. The drawbridge and the portcullis actually work, but no chance of trying them out!
The interior is a real folly, complete with loads of OTT decoration.
It was nice to pop in again for a visit.
