Where do we start with Cardiff holidays? It’s not just the city’s many attractions, fantastic shopping and renowned entertainment that have gained it a reputation as one of the UK’s most popular destinations for a break – it also has an atmosphere that means you’ll have a great time and instantly feel at home.
One of the nicest things about a holiday in Cardiff is that it’s a compact city, and with so much to see and do that means it’s easy to take in as much as possible during your stay without feeling as though you need another break to recover. With that in mind, we’d recommend starting your stay with a guided tour of the city so you know where you’re going and you can pick up some of Cardiff’s highlights before you start exploring in your own way.
So what should you be adding to your ‘must visit’ list? You can’t miss Cardiff Castle, it sits right in the centre of the city, and it’s the stuff fairy tales are made of. It’s a Roman fort, a dramatic Norman castle and a Victorian fantasy palace with Gothic trimmings all at the same time – and that’s just the half of it.
If you feel like snatching a few hours of peace and quiet in between shopping in the city’s many (and when we say many we mean it…) shops, then head to Bute Park. Within easy reach of the centre of the city, the park is one of its most scenic breathing spaces and it’s perfect for a picnic on a sunny day.
The city’s home to so many theatres, museums and galleries of every kind that there’s a day (or a night come to that) in Cardiff to suit every kind of person, and if it’s time for that break from it all with plenty of entertainment then start your search and choose your Cardiff holiday cottage today.
