Caerphilly retail opportunities
Caerphilly is the largest town in the County Borough, and a sub-regional centre.
The catchment area for the town includes Senghenydd, Abertridwr, Llanbradach, Bedwas, Trethomas & Machen, and Rudry, Waterloo and Draethen. This area has a population of approximately 53,000.
Caerphilly is a popular tourist destination, due to the presence of Caerphilly Castle, which is the second largest fortress in Europe and located in the centre of the town. Caerphilly has two shopping areas, each providing a distinct type of shopping offer.
The Castle Court Shopping Centre, located directly opposite the castle, is home to a wide variety of multiple retailers including: Morrisions, Argos, WH Smith, Boots and Costa Coffee. Whilst Cardiff Road is a more traditional shopping area featuring many of the town’s independent retailers, interspersed with familiar high street names including: Peacocks, Superdrug, Sports Direct and Iceland.
Local residents and visitors have benefited from a new library and community facility in the heart of the town centre. This modern, multi-million pound facility has been part funded by the Council and Welsh Government and enables ease of access to a wide range of Council services in addition to a modern library.
Caerphilly’s close proximity to the northern suburbs of Cardiff allows the town to be marketed to a much wider customer base and its historical character makes it a real alternative to the bigcity experience.
