Enjoy your own bit of Cardiff’s history during your stay at the Parc Hotel.

  1. A rich history

    The Romans set up a fort at Cardiff nearly two thousand years ago but most of the remains are now buried beneath the impressive Cardiff Castle. This imposing stronghold was built in the 11th century and is now one of the premier historical attractions in Cardiff. The years since this castle was established have seen Cardiff rise to its current significant position and this history, as well as the wider story of Wales, is traced out at the National Museum of Wales. A trip to this impressive museum reveals an educational and engaging historical attraction.
