Caerphilly, home to the biggest castle in Wales, is a town located in the Rhymney Valley. The capital city of Wales, Cardiff, is only 20 minutes away by car. The suburbs of Lisvane and Rhiwbina are only a few minutes drive over the Caerphilly mountains.
This medieval castle was built during the thirteenth century and is the largest of Wales' Castles and the second largest in Britain, Windsor being the first.
The castle exhibits impressive defence tactics of the past and there is a huge water moat surrounding it. The castle also exhibits a cutting edge example of great military planning of the past. It is easy to spend a day exploring the castle and its grounds.
Caerphilly is ideal for a holiday with its stunning countryside. The beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park is a must visit here. Caerphilly is about 80% countryside and is a great place for outdoor activities. Walking paths and trails can be found all over the Welsh hills and offer gorgeous scenery.
There are also more adventurous activities such as canoeing, archery, quad biking, abseiling and horseback riding. There are beautiful lakes in the area as well. If you visit the town of Caerphilly be sure to try the tasty local restaurants during your stay. There is also an annual cheese festival in summer.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
