Llantrisant Guildhall is a fascinating heritage and visitors’ centre that tells the remarkable story of an ancient Welsh hilltop town.
The Grade II Listed Building, has stood alongside a ruined Norman Castle for almost seven centuries and is now becoming a major tourist attraction in South Wales.
Visitors are enchanted by the splendour of Llantrisant Guildhall which has undergone a £1.4million restoration from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and other funding bodies.
The Court Room is home to a collection of artefacts and treasures. Learn more about the unique traditions of the celebrated Freemen of Llantrisant, whose charter was presented in 1346 by the Lord of Glamorgan shortly before they fought under the victorious Black Prince at the Battle of Crecy.
Children enjoy a variety of interactive displays, treasure hunts and competitions while also dressing in medieval costume in the Archer’s Hall. Many even attempt an archery competition of their own in a town that boasted its own army of trained longbowmen.
There are exhibitions to the eccentric Dr William Price, while tales of bloodthirsty battles and captured kings of England captivate visitors.
