Cardiff, the capital of Wales, stands out for its contrasts between the reflection of a rich historical past in its ancient monuments and buildings with the bustling city centre which represents modernity and technology. If you are planning to travel to Wales, Cardiff is definitely a mandatory stop.
Once there, we recommend you to visit Cardiff Bay, considered to be one of the most beautiful parts of the city. It is a great place for practising all kinds of water sports or sailing, but the area is also packed with nice restaurants and bars. In addition, its privileged location at just one mile from the city centre, where the majority of hotels are to be found, makes it one of the most popular parts of the city. You will also have the opportunity of visiting the Wales Millennium Centre or the Red Dragon Centre. The Tube Centre has also very interesting temporary expositions about the history of Cardiff’s Bay.
However, Cardiff’s major landmark is Cardiff Castle, which is located at the heart of the city. If you are interested in visiting this historic castle, the entrance also includes a ticket for the Interpretation Centre, which will give you a wider view of the history and relevance of this iconic castle. The beautiful surrounding gardens are also included in the price.
Cardiff is also known for its rich cultural offer, with a great variety of museums, art galleries and expositions for you to visit. We recommend you to visit the St. Fagans National History Museum or the National Roman Legion Museum. But the Norwegian Church, located in the Bay, or the Llandaff Cathedral are also worth visiting.
