|Would We Dare To Meet the Dragon at Caerphilly Castle?|
Today the sun was shining. A perfect day to visit a Castle and a Dragon.
There is a big pay and display car park across the park to the castle. A lovely walk on a sunny day with lots of ducks and geese. Bear loved it! He was already thinking that this was wonderful and couldn't get any better but he was wrong.
The approach to the castle is fantastic, with it's famous leaning tower. We had free entry because we are members of CADW (£10 off at the moment) and under 5's go free.

Just inside the castle is the shop then the Dragon.
A Smoking Dragon!
Were we brave enough? Brave enough to stand in it's claw? To look into it's eye? To stand anywhere near when it was breathing out smoke? Well yes and no!
|Bear in the claw of the Dragon|
|Bear had a good look at his eye|
|Not so brave when the Dragon has smoke coming from its nostrils|
Bear didn't like the Dragon when it had smoke coming out but loved it's eye and it's claw.
What else is there for toddlers?
Lots of sounds. Horses stomping, drawbridges rising, in the great hall the fire crackling. Wonderful sounds to bring the place to life.
There was a fabulous interactive display in one of the rooms where you could blow up a barrel, or flood the moat, or open a birthday card.
|Touch screen has some surprises!|
|Lots of space to run around inside....|
|A well. Just like a big drain really|
|Medieval puddles are the best|
