Being so colourful and culturally vibrant, there’s plenty to see and do in the glorious capital of Wales - it really is the perfect destination for a day out by train. With fun activities for all the family, this beautiful house and gardens are a must-see when visiting Cardiff. For more historic culture, the dramatic Cardiff Castle stands watch over the heart of the city, offering an atmospheric journey back in time.
With numerous art galleries, museums and theatres, including the home of performing arts, the Millennium Centre, situated in the glamourous Cardiff Bay area, whether you’re after a matinée show, or something to finish the perfect evening, you’ll find it right here.
If you’re seeking an adrenaline buzz, Cardiff International White Water or snowboarding should fulfil that drive, but if you prefer to watch, head for the impressive Principality Stadium, home of rugby, and host to cricket, football, boxing and so much more.
If retail is your thing, the shopping in Cardiff is second-to-none, with the vibrant Queen’s Arcade and St David’s containing all the big name high street names and designer labels. However, if you’re looking for something more exclusively unique, the well preserved Victorian arcades showcase local artisan talents, with displays of bright, chunky knits, handcrafted silver, and studio pottery. Quaint tea rooms wait around every corner, serving delicious homemade cakes, inviting you in to plan your next move.
