The County Borough of Caerphilly (Welsh: Bwrdeistref Sirol Caerffili) is a Unitary Authority centred on the town of Merthyr Tydfil in Wales.



The county borough was formed on 1 April 1996 following major reorganisation of local government in Wales. The county borough was previously split between the former County of Gwent and the County of Mid Glamorgan and, before that, the former historic counties of Monmouthshire and Glamorgan which were abolished in 1974.

The headquarters of the authority are in the town of Caerphilly.
