Enjoy a city break in Cardiff

Holidays in Cardiff invite you combine the hidden treasures of the capital, with the rolling landscapes and village-dotted coastline of Wales. This often-overlooked capital city has lots to offer, making it ideal for a city break or longer stay.

A regeneration in the 1990’s transformed some of Cardiff’s unnoticed locations into city hotspots. Built during the 19th century coal boom, many top attractions owe their presence to this buzzing Victorian era. The city centre is easily explored by foot, with days spent shopping or soaking up the culture in museums and galleries. Rolling hills are synonymous with Wales, and the capital city is no exception – with more than two thousand acres of parkland. Spend some time in Bute Park, which is overlooked by the spectacular Cardiff Castle. Or stroll across the Barrage to the quaint marina at Penarth. If you’re in the city on a Sunday, head to the Riverside Market for local South Wales produce or delicious street food.
