Cardiff is one of the most visited cities in the UK, and this beautifully vibrant and cosmopolitan city is the ideal destination for an enjoyable, adventurous day out.

Cardiff is full of attractions, and high on the list is the family-friendly Techniquest science centre. Jam-packed with interactive games, designed to educate and inform, with the emphasis on fun. The more adventurous should head for Cardiff International White Water, the Skate Plaza, or Cardiff Castle, while sports fans can get their fix at the Principality Stadium, home of rugby and football. 

Why not visit the Queen’s Arcade shopping centre if you fancy treating yourself? With big-name brands and designer labels, every taste is catered for. However, if you prefer browsing through independent artisan boutiques, the architecturally impressive Victorian arcades scattered throughout the city, are well worth seeking out. Full of handcrafted goodies, studio glassware and pottery, and unique pieces of silver, there’s something for everyone. 

Why not treat yourself to a fine dining experience in one of the many award-winning restaurants, before catching the train back to Pontypridd, the birthplace of the iconic Sir Tom Jones. Keep up-to-date with our easily accessible app, and follow our Live Route Status for the latest updates.
