Cardiff Castle, Wales

Close the door on your Cardiff hotel room and you’re heading for a city that has built on its heritage, where a Norman keep overlooks glass and steel stadiums and industrial spaces are reinvented without losing their Welsh flavour.

Historic Cardiff

The Romans built a fort on the site of Cardiff Castle but these days the wow factor comes from the loaded Marquess of Bute’s lavish Gothic-style rebuild. The Edwardian Cardiff City Hall in Cathays Park is synonymous with the civic heart of the city and hosts regular festivals.

Art and museums in Cardiff

Take a day to explore the free National Museum Cardiff with its rooms of natural history and works of art from the past 500 years. Sister venue St Fagans National History Museum is home to a replica Iron Age fort that’s fun to squat through – they were quite short then.

Quirky things to do in Cardiff

Any tourist who doesn’t visit the Red Dragon Centre at Cardiff Bay for the Doctor Who Up Close exhibition should really be exterminated. Amongst the explosion of light and sound, give thanks to now-departed Dalek creator Terry Nation, a local lad.

Events in Cardiff

If you book a Cardiff hotel in July, beg or borrow a ticket to the Welsh Proms. Funfair meets music festival when the city’s biggest free event of the year, the Cardiff Big Weekend, kicks off every August in a frenzy of events.
