What to do in Cardiff

The capital of Wales is also Europe's youngest capital, with a progressive and confident personality to match. A century ago, it was the busiest coal port in the world; today those very docks have been transformed into a dazzling waterfront complex of restaurants and visitor attractions. Outstanding museums, theatres and shops mean all-year, lively entertainment. But with over 330 parks and gardens, Cardiff is also among the UK's greenest cities, so relax!

 

Jump aboard a waterbus at Mermaid Quay for a panoramic sightseeing tour of the revitalised Cardiff Bay. Get to the heart of the Welsh nation's rugby fervour with a conducted tour behind the scenes of the awesome Millennium Stadium.
