The big fat capital of Wales! Cardiff is absolutely heaving with things to see and do, no matter what your age or what you like to do. There are shops galore, an eclectic covered Victorian market, museums and galleries, countless places to eat, and a lively nightlife with an abundance of bars and clubs. You can go skating at the Viola Arena, have a barrel of laughs at Tree Top Adventure Golf, have a blast at Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre, take a boat trip to Flatholm Island and grab a whole load of history at Cardiff Castle or Llandaff Cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace. A great way to see the city is with a Hop-on-Hop off Bus Tour, or for a totally different perspective, a Cardiff Bay Boat Tour
There are golf clubs, escape rooms, bowling alleys – everything you can think of, so plan your visit well and pack in as much as you can. If you feel the need to take five away from the hubbub of the city streets divert to Bute Park or go to Dyffrn Gardens on the outskirts of Cardiff. Something else that’s nice is to hire bikes and cycle out over Cardiff Bay Barrage for the most incredible views of the city and the Severn estuary.
Those places to eat? Phew, where to start? Viva Brazil is excellent for carnivores; the other end of the scale Anna Loka serves awesome vegan food, Coffee Barker is great for, yep, coffee and lunches.
