The An­gel Ho­tel tun­nel

South Wales Echo - - NEWS -

This tun­nel, found in the base­ment of the An­gel Ho­tel on Cas­tle Street, was thought to lead to Cardiff Cas­tle.

A mys­te­ri­ous wa­ter-filled un­der­ground tun­nel, which may date back to the 13th cen­tury, was un­earthed by builders in the base­ment of the ho­tel in the early 1950s.

It was ru­moured that an un­der­ground pas­sage con­nected the cas­tle with the ho­tel – which is on the site of what was once a pri­vate res­i­dence of the De Claire fam­ily.
