Welcome to Caerphilly (Caerffili)

Its other claim to fame is as the birthplace of Tommy Cooper, a much-loved British comedian who died while performing a live TV show in 1984. A statue of Cooper in his trademark fez and with a rabbit at his feet overlooks the castle from near the tourist office. Unfortunately, nothing else in the town remotely approaches the castle (or the cheese, for that matter) for interest and significance – it's a definite day-trip candidate.
