From 1 hour 9 mins
With a rich history, and a cosmopolitan vibe, the capital of Wales has something for everyone, from culture to the maximum adrenaline rush. Big and little kids alike will love - or scream, at the death-defying high rope experience at the International White Water Centre. But with white water rafting and standing paddleboards available, if heights aren’t your thing, there’s plenty to do. The Centre also has a lovely cafe where you can relax and gather your thoughts.
Nearby is the iconic Millenium Centre. With an eclectic programme of shows, the home of performing arts is a beautifully designed building, recognisable for the words ‘Truth is as clear as glass forged in the flames of inspiration’ carved across the front in Welsh.
Overlooking the city centre, the impressive Cardiff Castle is well worth a visit for its architecture alone! Displaying a juxtapose of medieval grandeur and Victorian gothic, it sits in glorious parkland, often host to open-air concerts and festivals.
Shopaholics can visit the Queen’s Arcade, where the high street names vie for your attention with designer labels, while the narrow lanes outside are home to numerous boutique stores, showcasing local crafts and art. Offering paintings, studio glass, and handcrafted jewellery, pick up a packet of delicious homemade shortbread while you’re here.
