This is a ghost walk with a difference, for adults and older children (min age 13) brought to you by "Cardiff History and Hauntings" offering professional guided walks discovering Cardiff's past - on this walk you are in a city but can enjoy a mystical rural atmosphere, a chilling torch lit Cardiff ghost tour in an ancient village setting amidst ruins, graveyards and wooded lanes, with the spirits of those long dead – sad phantoms, strange lights, and sinister entities. Just a 10 minute bus ride from Cardiff Castle.

Definetly Llandaff, it's far more spooky walking around a graveyard in the dark and down a wooded lane. Cardiff castle is still great though.
