Insole Court Mansion reopened its doors to visitors for the first time in three years in late July.
Though conservation and restoration work is ongoing, the Ground Floor is now open to visitors including the beautiful Reading Room, filled with antiques and rare books.
Visitors can learn some of Insole Court’s history, browse the new foyer shop and experience some of the ornate decoration that makes the house so unique.
The mansion was recently featured on the BBC One Wales documentary Hidden Cardiff. The show’s presenter, Will Millard summed up his visit, saying:
“Going around Insole Court today, really has brought home how little we have left in Cardiff of the city’s industrial past. That’s why it’s so important that the heritage of places like this carry on.”
Saved by the community, the 160-year-old house has undergone essential refurbishments with the Stable Yard opening last year. Entry to the newly opened ground floor is free and the house is open every day.
