Cardiff Holidays Overview


Cardiff was known as a gruff industrial city but over the last few decades it has undergone a transformation. Now it is recognized as one of the top tourism centers in the United Kingdom. Cardiff is a modern and lively city, known for its rich history and Welsh culture. The best time to visit is in summer when there are a number of large festivals.

Cardiff is a green city with the highest amount of green space per person in Britain. The city centre is the main shopping attraction for the country. It is known as the “City of Castles”, with five within its city borders, including Cardiff Castle.

Scattered throughout the city are several landmark buildings like the Welsh National Museum, Pierhead Building, Millennium Stadium and Senedd. Cardiff is particularly known for being home to the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Castle, Llandaff Cathedral and St David's Hall. The open air museum of history at St Fagan’s has many buildings from Welsh history. In Cathays Park, the Civic Centre also showcases a collection of beautiful Edwardian buildings like the Cardiff Crown Court, National Museum and Gallery of Wales and the City Hall.

Cardiff is known for its vibrant nightlife and has several clubs, pubs and bars located on Charles Street and St. Mary Street in the city centre.

Cardiff holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Brecon Beacons

What is it? The Brecon Beacons National Park is only half an hours drive north from Cardiff and comprises four mountain ranges and an interesting terrain of old mining valleys, bare escarpments and sprawling sheep farms. Most visitors are walkers heading for Offa's Dyke Path, which passes along the eastern border, or the Taff Trail, heading south from Brecon. Offa's Path runs through the Black Mountains, which boasts spectacular views including sights such as the ruins of Llanthony Priory, the River Honddu and the pretty church at Patrishow. The highest point in the Black mountains is Waun Fach and the tallest peak in the Brecon Beacons is Pen-y-Fan. Don't be surprised if you bump into groups of soldiers in the park - this is a major army exercise area and a main training ground for the SAS who you might see bounding up the mountains, doing the Fan Dance. Around the park are the historic market towns of Brecon Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye, a fascinating little town with Norman and Jacobean ruins and the world's largest selection of second-hand book shops - 30 of them.

2. Pembrokeshire

What is it? Located in the southwest corner of Wales the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park runs along a coastline riddled with rugged cliffs, superb sandy beaches, rocky coves and tiny fishing villages. There is some spectacular scenery and wonderful coastal walks including the well-trodden 167-mile (269km) Coast Path. Inland, the historic Preseli Hills conceal ancient trade routes, hill forts, standing stones and burial chambers. The tiny islands offshore are inhabited by colonies of puffins, guillemots, razorbills, gannets and grey seals. The area is an activity-lover's paradise, with a choice of hiking, pony trekking, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing opportunities. The best time to visit is in spring when wild flowers abound and most ramblers have yet to arrive. The town of Pembroke is worth visiting only for its fearsome castle, which, founded by the Normans, has an intriguing history (open every day between 10am to 4pm). Just South of the Park is the city St David's, which is actually little larger than your average village. The cathedral is the resting place of St David, the patron Saint of Wales, and during the Middle Ages was one of the most holy places in Britain. Two pilgrimages here were equivalent to one to Rome.

3. Snowdonia

What is it? Snowdonia is Britain's second-biggest national park after the Lake District, boasting rugged mountain trails through some of the tallest peaks south of the Scottish Highlands. The tallest peak is Mount Snowdon at 3,560ft (1,068m), which is visited by half a million people each year, many climbing or walking while the less adventurous ride the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the top. While Snowdonia is a Mecca for hikers and climbers, there is plenty to explore including lakes, waterfalls, glacial valleys, as well as forts, railways and the crumbling remains of the country's mining heritage. Other nearby destinations not to be missed include the beautiful Victorian resort of Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert whose former copper mines are open to the public, and Blaenau Ffestiniog, which also takes the public on tours through its cavernous slate mines.
