Any visit to Wales should include Cardiff. Our
capital city has a wealth of attractions, activities and events to experience,
not to mention a fantastic choice of great places to
Highlights of any visit to Cardiff include the city centre's Big
Three - three top attractions all within 10 minutes walk of each
The National Museum hosts one of the
finest collections of art in the country as well as exhibitions on
the history and evolution of Wales.
Just opposite is Cardiff Castle, a part
Roman, part Norman fort that was spectacularly upgraded into the
lavish residence of eccentric local noble man Lord Bute during
Climb the castle's keep and staring you right in the face will be
the unmistakable site of the Millennium Stadium. Opened in
1999 for the Rugby World Cup, the stadium has gone on to host many
major sporting events as well as huge rock and pop concerts.
Don't miss your opportunity to take a look behind the scenes on one
of the stadium tours.
As well as the major attractions, the city centre is also a fine
place for a spot of shopping. All
the major high street stores are here, based in or around the new
St David's Shopping Centre. But what sets Cardiff apart from
all the other retail centres in the country are it's warren of
arcades that criss cross the city. Each one of them is jam
packed full of small independent stores selling local goods.
To the south of the city centre lies Cardiff Bay. Once home
to the largest coal exporting port in the world, the bay is now
full of exciting attractions as well as a huge range of cafes and
restaurants. In the bay you'll find Wales' premier performing
arts centre, the un-mistakable of the Wales
Millennium Centre, the Senedd, Techniquest Science Discovery Centre
and the white knuckle rapids of the Cardiff International White Water
One other attraction that definitely should be on your radar when
visiting Cardiff is the St Fagans National History
Museum. One of Wales' most popular attractions,
the open air museum is full of historical buildings from all over
Wales, which have been re-built brick by brick in order to tell the
story of Wales.
