Cardiff Travel Guide

flights to Cardiff

Possibly Wales’most popular tourist attraction, Cardiff Castle, with its storybook towers and elaborate interiors, is situated in the very heart of the city next to the shopping centre and the wonderful Bute Park. Another stunning edifice is the monumental red brick Pierhead Building the focal point of the newly restored Cardiff Bay (formerly Tiger Bay). A visit to Llandaff Cathedral makes a pleasant rest bite from the bustle of the city. Dating from 1130 the church contains fine examples of Pre-Raphaelite reredos by Burne-Jones and beautiful stained glass by Rossetti.

On a more modern note Techniquest, situated near the Welsh Industrial and Maritime Museum is the UK’s largest hands-on science exhibition. If you’re looking for something a little les cerebral check out Cardiff Market in the Hayes, famous for its fine cold meats and cheese. Of, course, a visit to the Welsh Capital would not be complete without taking in the national sport (season permitting). The Millennium Centre is situated on the site of the former National Team’s home-ground, Cardiff arms Park and seats 72,000. It is also Europe’s largest undercover venue and is the only stadium in Britain to boast a retractable roof. As the cities regeneration plan continues so its popularity increases and, let’s face it whatever your interest – history, sport, entertainment, pubs or shopping – Cardiff is always worth a visit.
