The perfect destination for a day trip, Cardiff, with its stunning castle, is rich, vibrant and buzzing, and with more green areas per person than any other UK city, it’s a popular place to visit.
The cultural heritage is apparent throughout the city, with numerous art galleries, museums, including the National Museum, and theatres. For performance art, exhibitions and workshops head to the iconic Millennium Centre, situated in the Cardiff Bay area. If sport is your passion, visit the equally impressive Principality Stadium, home of Welsh rugby, cricket and football. Participate in adrenaline-fuelled activity yourself at Cardiff International White Water, or try off-road biking, and have a go at climbing.
Retail therapy in the Queen’s Arcade shopping centre is bright and busy, with big names wherever you look alongside designer labels and exclusive brands. But if you prefer more salubrious surroundings, head to one of the older Victorian arcades. Full of artisan boutiques and handmade treasures, they are a gift hunters paradise. Welcoming coffee houses wait around every corner, inviting you to take the weight off, while you plan where to go next.
