Visiting Castell Coch
I haven't been to Castell Coch yet...
While resting on ancient foundations, Castell Coch (Red Castle) is relatively modern, the by-product of a vivid Victorian imagination, assisted by untold wealth. The Middle Ages fascinated the Victorians as much as the Victorians fascinate us today. High Gothic was the order of the day. The â€˜eccentric geniusâ€™ William Burges was given free rein by his paymaster, John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd marquess of Bute, to create a rural retreat to complement the opulence of his main residence, Cardiff Castle. He didnâ€™t hold back. Dazzling ceilings, over-the-top furnishings and furniture were liberally applied.
