The industrial Welsh capital has seen a renaissance in recent years, transforming it into a tourist hot spot brimming with pavement cafes, castles, bags of green space and fun-filled festivals.

Free bicycles dotted around the city make it easy to see Cardiff’s many attractions. There are beautiful bike trails like the Taff and Ely, letting you go off-road and escape the hurly burly. Cardiff Castle, the Millennium Stadium and the hill-top Iron Age Fort are just a few of the city’s must-see landmarks while the National History Museum and local galleries serve up a helping of culture. Enjoy relaxing afternoons in local cafes or release your inner adrenalin junkie with a speedboat ride around Cardiff Bay. Visit beautiful Barry Island Beach, a great starting point when you arrive on your flights to Cardiff near the airport, or Bute Park in the city for a fun family day out.

With a comprehensive bus service, whether you stay in Cardiff Bay or the city centre, getting around is easy. St David’s Spa Hotel is a beautiful choice if you want to treat yourself, with magnificent views out across the Bay. Wedal Road Youth Hostel is a funky, fun and super-cheap option just 20 minutes’ walk from the main shopping district. The Marriot offers mid-range accommodation in the heart of Cardiff’s nightlife, while Cardiff Caravan Park, on the scenic banks of the Taff makes a brilliant family choice.
