Experience the Welsh Capital This Spring

Cardiff has emerged as one of the UK's top tourism cities in recent years, thanks to extensive redevelopment of Cardiff Bay and other areas. Whether you're visiting Cardiff for the first time or returning to this cosmopolitan city, there's plenty to see and do on a weekend break or longer stay.

It's easy to get around in Cardiff's compact city centre, and many of the leading attractions can be easily seen - including the multi-faceted Cardiff Castle, where visitors can take guided tours to discover its various Roman, Norman and Gothic features. Some of Cardiff's top museums are located close by, so it's easy to make the most of cultural visits to the Welsh capital. Sport lovers can head to the Millennium Stadium, one of Britain's major venues, which opened for the 1999 Rugby World Cup and still hosts some of the biggest national and international events.

Even with its old castles, cathedral and city walls, Cardiff has a reputation as a distinctly modern city, which is well earned. Major centres such as the Wales Millennium Centre and The National Assembly for Wales (also known as the Senedd) in Cardiff Bay were opened in recent years and drastically transformed the city's skyline.

However, that's not to say you can't still enjoy traditional experiences in the capital - especially with some of the most popular destinations being the enclosed Victorian and Edwardian market halls off the High Street and St Mary Street. These market halls can be the best places to find mementos of your visit to Wales, and to browse numerous one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.

If you're eager to learn more about the history of Wales during your stay in Cardiff, the National Museum of Wales at the Civic Centre is a must-visit destination, which is free to enter and features notable artworks and archaeological remains from throughout Wales' history. For a more immersive experience though, many people flock to St Fagans National History Museum, an open-air museum that features reconstructions of period buildings amidst the well maintained castle gardens. The Cardiff Museum is another recommended destination, where you can find out more about this remarkable city and chart its progress over the years.

If you're looking for hotels in Cardiff and trying to choose a location, Cardiff Bay features many of the city's top restaurants and entertainment centres, and offers easy access to major sights and transport links.
