Cardiff Castle, in Wales, may not be as famous as the castles and palaces in Scotland and England but it boasts some spectacular architectural surprises.
The brainchild of architect William Bruges, the almost 200 year old castle has an Arab Room with an ornate gold leaf ceiling, a nursery with fairytale murals and lamps, and exotic animal statues. And these are just a tiny sample of its treasures.
Believe me, these pictures don’t do any justice to the real thing.
Have a wonderful weekend!
