Jumping on a train for the twenty minute journey from Bridgend to Cardiff couldn’t be easier. Direct trains run frequently throughout the day, from 04.00 until 23.00.

Cardiff, exciting, cosmopolitan and vibrant, has plenty to offer either day trippers, or those who plan to stay a little longer. At the heart of the colourful capital of Wales, sits the impressively built Cardiff Castle, surrounded by the ever popular Bute Park. The nearby National Museum has vast collections of contemporary art, natural history and more - the dinosaur collection easily rivalling that of the London museums.

Cardiff Bay, houses award winning restaurants and bars, is home to the iconic Millennium Centre, the world class venue for art, theatre, and live performances, and the Senedd building, the site of the National Assembly for Wales.
