Volunteering at Caerphilly Castle

Caerphilly Castle

Caerphilly Castle

Exciting volunteering opportunities are available at Caerphilly Castle, the largest castle in Wales.  We currently have vacancies for costumed interpretation performer volunteers.

Surrounded by a series of moats and watery islands, Caerphilly Castle was the brainchild of Gilbert ‘the Red’ de Clare, who also built the original Castell Coch. Early attempts by Gilbert to build a castle were thwarted by the Welsh prince Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, But he eventually won through and built a mammoth stronghold using the concentric ‘walls within walls’ system of defence. Over time the site would fall into disrepair until much later In the late 19th century the third marquess of Bute began preservation work.  So, there are many stories to tell.

If you would like to help the custodians bring this Caerphilly giant to life and support the visitor experience, please complete and return the online application form to: CaerphillyCastle@gov.wales and we will get back to you.
