What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon. ~ G. K. Chesteron
I live in Cardiff, South Wales and on the outskirts of the city is what can only be described as a fairy tale castle, Castell Coch. I haven’t been up there myself since I was a child, so I took my own daughter up there last summer for a day out to have a look around and see if it’s how I remembered it. The sun shone and it was fairly glorious, I can highly recommend it.
Castell Coch is one of two castles in the City, the other being the much larger Cardiff Castle situated in the city centre with its Roman keep and we’re very lucky to have them I think!
