Vibrant and culturally diverse, there are plenty of attractions in Cardiff, however most visitors to the area start in the historic heart of the city - Cardiff Castle. With imposing, well-preserved walls, this fairytale castle has stood proud since the 11th century, and is a popular attraction, as is Cardiff Cathedral.
For more culture, head for the National Museum Cardiff with its wide, eclectic programme of displays, exhibitions, and events, and if live art is your thing Cardiff Bay should be your next port of call. The iconic Millennium Centre hosts numerous world-class performances, including live music, ballet, hip hop, stand up comedy, and for sports fans, the Principality Stadium, home of Welsh rugby, football and many other sporting events, is a must-see.
Adrenaline junkies should try their hand at indoor climbing, white water rafting, or go-karting, and for those who enjoy a quieter pace, the Queen’s Arcade will exercise your credit cards in the wide mix of high street stores and exclusive designers labels. If you prefer the more unique one-off handcrafts, seek out the numerous boutique arcades. These are full of beautiful artisan pieces, such as chunky knits, studio pottery or silver jewellery.
