Cardiff Cathedral is an awe-inspiring sight. Designed by the great architect, Pugin, it was heavily destroyed in World War II and has since been rebuilt and restored to its former glory. Continuing Cardiff’s stunning architecture, both the City Hall and National Museum are renowned for their exterior as much as their interiors, and with a varied repertoire of events and exhibitions, there’s plenty for all to see and enjoy.
St David’s and the Queen’s Arcade should be high on your sightseeing list, and with all the high street names and designer labels, a spot of retail therapy is a must. However, if you prefer something a little different, head for one of the many Victorian arcades that dot the city. Popular for artisan boutiques full of handcrafted treasures, you’ll find everything from chunky, stylish knits to mouth-blown glassware and handmade fudge - go on, treat yourself!
Home to an eclectic programme of live performances and shows, the Millennium Centre is well worth a visit, and offers everything from musicals to ballet and stand up comedy. Nearby, stands the Principality Stadium with daily tours taking you around this world-class sports venue.
