The Caerphilly Treasure Trail starts at:
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

If you like castles then this Trail is for you! You do not need to pay to go in the castle to complete this Trail. Caerphilly Town is dominated by its historic 13th Century castle which has been described as one of the great medieval castles of western Europe and, at the time of its building, a revolutionary masterpiece of military planning. Its leaning south-east tower could compete with Pisa any day!
The Trail starts right in the centre of town and takes you around the south side of the castle, visiting Morgan Jones Park before returning to the castle grounds and the Daffydd Williams Park. It's quite short which leaves plenty of time for visiting the inside of the Castle if you want to.
Morgan Jones Park now has restricted opening times during the winter months: from February to October gates close at 5pm.
The castle holds events throughout the year, so we recommend checking this website here: What's On to make sure there's nothing on that may disrupt the Trail.
