Cardiff is calling


Cardiff is steeped in an industrial heritage that dates back to the 19th century, yet it evokes a surprisingly youthful persona. The city has shrugged off its lacklustre reputation and emerged fresh-faced.

Cardiff Harbour was once a bustling port, at the heart of the coal boom. Now it represents some of the Welsh capitals most sought after dining and nightlife. Admire the striking architecture of the bay, with the eclectic offering of the traditional Pierhead Building, award-winning Senedd and picturesque Norwegian Church Arts Centre. Then take a stroll along the boardwalk at Mermaid Quay, across the sea Barrage to Penarth marina – it’s quite a walk so hop on a water taxi back. Soak up the atmosphere of the restyled waterfront, which is buzzing with places to eat and drink. Or explore the glass-covered shopping arcades, which have been abuzz since the Victorian times. They now inhabit independent boutiques, delis and coffee shops – discover hidden gems on city breaks in Cardiff.
