Be transported to a world of wonder this Bank Holiday and beyond. Read on to discover some of our most exciting events yet, as part of the 2017 Year of Legends. Families and dragon-hunters alike are invited to meet Cadw's resident Welsh Dragons, ‘Dewi and Dwynwen’, this half-term week at Caerphilly Castle (until Sunday 28 May) and Chepstow Castle (from Monday 29 May).

Visitors to Cadw sites are being encouraged to share their experiences on social media by using the hashtag #LivetheLegends.


   

 Find the fairies

 

Using the Cadw app at Castell Coch now allows you to find and catch digital fairies around our very own fairy tale castle, by using augmented reality. Can you find all of the fluttering fairies?


 

Bank Holiday bonanza!
