Cyfarthfa Castle

The feel

Cyfarthfa Castle, situated within the picturesque surroundings of Cyfarthfa Park and nestled at the foot of the Brecon Beacons, provides a stunning location for your wedding or civil ceremony.

Built in 1825 as a majestic family home for the Ironmaster William Crawshay II, this sumptuous regency building commands a spectacular view of the valley and town of Merthyr Tydfil and directly overlooks the beautiful Cyfarthfa Lake.

Our unique Wedding Room at Cyfarthfa was formerly the office of William Crawshay II and it was from this room, almost 200 years ago, that he oversaw the management of his world famous Cyfarthfa Ironworks. Decorated in the original 1825 wallpaper of blue jasmine on a green background with gold stars, complimented by the original grey/green paintwork, it is an elegant venue and will accommodate up to 50 guests for your special day.

Wedding ceremonies or civil ceremonies are held at Cyfarthfa from Monday to Sunday throughout our summer period (April 1st to September 30th), and Tuesday to Sunday throughout our winter period (October 1st to March 31st).

Our Ceremony Coordinator at Cyfarthfa is at your service to ensure you have the day you dream of. Please contact us for friendly advice or to arrange a visit
