Being the largest city in Wales, Cardiff has something for everyone, whether you’re having a family day out or a cultural visit to the capital. A good place to start is the 11th century Cardiff Castle - the historic heart of this cosmopolitan city, before heading for the National Museum Cardiff. An art gallery mixed with museum exhibits, and with a full programme of events and performances, this is a must-see. Cardiff Cathedral is another sight you won’t want to miss. Officially known as The Metropolitan Cathedral Church of St David, this architectural masterpiece is a much-visited iconic part of the city centre.
If you prefer the performing arts, the iconic Millennium Centre should be your destination. Showcasing a world-class programme of events, including ballet, rock, improv comedy and workshops, there’s a wealth of new talent, both homegrown and international, while adrenaline junkies should head for exhilarating white water racing, awesome go-karting, or exciting skiing.
For shopping fans, there’s a wide mix of big names and exclusive designers labels in the Queen’s Arcade, but seekers of the salubrious should hunt down the independent artisan boutiques Cardiff is known for - chunky knits, handcrafted silver jewellery, studio glassware and one-off pieces are all here, so take your time and enjoy browsing.
