The dynamic Welsh capital has deep roots in the past.
CARDIFF - AT A GLANCE
If Wales is the ‘Land of Castles’, Cardiff must be ‘Castle Capital’. See medieval knights joust at the majestic Cardiff Castle or visit the fairy-tale Castell Coch.
When it comes to sport, Cardiff is a champion. The world-famous Principality Stadium is the home of Welsh rugby and football and is also the regular venue for the British Speedway Grand Prix.
Visit graceful Victorian shopping arcades, which tempt with independent shops and cafes.
Just 5 minutes from the city center is the chic Mermaid Quay — the perfect place to refuel after a busy day of sightseeing, or to relax with a romantic meal on the waterfront.
Cardiff is a hugely creative city with a vibrant cultural scene. You’ll find live music in the city every night of the week at venues like Clwb Ifor Bach, The Globe, Live Lounge and the Exchange Hotel.
The Welsh capital is the main jumping off point for any tour of mainland Britain’s most westerly country.
Cardiff is just over 2 hours west of London by train.
