Live departures and arrivals

Cardiff is a rich, culturally vibrant place to visit, with a colourful diversity stemming from international university students, the thriving commerce district and the varied retail offerings. With more green areas per head of population than any other UK city, it is an ideal place to live, and is the perfect destination for a day out by train. 

Art galleries, museums and theatres display the cultural heritage, alongside new innovative ideas, that Wales is celebrated for, and many performances take place in the iconic Millennium Centre, situated in the Cardiff Bay area. Close by is the equally impressive Principality Stadium, home of rugby, and host to cricket and football matches.

For retail addicts, big-name brands fill the Queen’s Arcade shopping centre, and nearby ultra-chic boutiques showcase local artisan talents and studio pieces in the older Victorian arcades. Welcoming coffee houses wait around every corner, inviting you to take the weight off, while you plan where to go next.  

If you’re seeking an adrenaline buzz, Cardiff International White Water, cross country bike tours, and climbing lessons are a must-do, as is the dramatic Cardiff Castle. With walls topped by fairytale turrets, guided tours take you from the deepest dungeons to the highest point, where you can gaze out over this lively, exciting city.
