You’ll be spoilt for choice for how to spend your day in the Welsh capital. Cardiff is the ideal place for a spot of retail therapy, from the small independent stores in the old Victorian arcades, all the way up to the big name brands found in the Queen’s Arcade, there is something for every taste and budget.

No trip to Cardiff would be complete without a trip to the majestic Cardiff Castle. Kids and adults alike will love to explore all the way from the heights of the towering turrets, down to the deep (and supposedly haunted) dungeons. On a clear day you can climb to the top of the towers and gaze across the city, while planning the next step of your adventure.

For thrill seekers a trip to the Cardiff International White Water Centre is a must; here you can experience white water rafting, stand up paddleboarding and gorge walking, and after all that exercise, you don’t even need to worry about being too tired for the drive home!

After the excitement, head for Cardiff Bay to finish your day off with a meal and a few drinks in one of the many bars and restaurants that can be found there, before heading back to the station for your journey home.
