Located in the city centre, the magnificent Cardiff Castle, full of mediaeval grandeur, stands watch as the city bustles around its glorious parks. The interior of this gothic masterpiece is so richly splendid, it’s a joy to experience. St Fagans National Museum, Cardiff’s most visited heritage attraction, stands in the castle grounds.

The Cardiff Bay area is home to the iconic and instantly recognisable Millennium Centre.

Around the Bay area, adrenaline junkies can find their buzz at Cardiff International White Water, try their hand at climbing or take a cross country bike tour.
