There’s so much to see and do in Cardiff, it’s perfect for a great day out. The shops and award-winning restaurants are good enough to rival any big city, but it also manages to keep the quaint small town feel with its smaller boutiques and independent bars and restaurants.

The Millennium Centre has plenty going on for all the family. With big-name West End shows and dance performances, through to family-friendly shows and craft sessions, there really is something for all to enjoy.

If you’re coming to Cardiff for a spot of retail therapy then you certainly won’t be disappointed. Big name brands and designers are well catered for within the Queen’s Arcade shopping centre, however you can also find local crafts, and small boutiques throughout the city streets. Whatever your taste or budget, there’s something to suit everyone.

Sports fans won’t miss out on the excitement either. With Cardiff City football team at the Cardiff City Stadium, the Cardiff Blues rugby union team at the world-famous Cardiff Arms Park or Cardiff Devils ice hockey team at the Viola Arena, there’s always something to keep even the most hardened sports fan happy. 

With over 2000 years of history within its walls, no trip to Cardiff is complete without a trip to visit the stunning Cardiff Castle. Climb to the top of the highest turrets and you will be able to gaze out over this fantastic city, on a quiet day you could almost forget that you are in the middle of the largest city in Wales.

Whether you are travelling from Barry to Cardiff for work or pleasure, you can’t get better than making the trip with Transport for Wakes. Our Live Route Status and user-friendly app will keep you informed of any updates to your journey.
