3 Clock Tower of Cardiff Castle in Cardiff, Wales

This Clock Tower dominates the southwest wall of Cardiff Castle. It was designed by architect William Burges at the request of John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd Marquess of Bute. He was one of the world’s wealthiest men during the 19th century because of his family extensive land ownership and their legacy for making Cardiff a powerful coal exporting port. Inside of this tower are several opulent bachelor’s rooms. At the top is a two-level Summer Smoking Room. Visiting this tower costs extra, but you will thoroughly enjoy the 30 minute experience.
