Discover Cardiff

Discover Cardiff

In recent years a glitzy redevelopment project around the sprawling dockside area has transformed the rougher edges of the city into a cosmopolitan hub of dining, drinking, shopping and sightseeing. Few parts of the UK boast as many open green spaces (and castles!) as Cardiff, making it especially popular in summer when the capital comes alive with tourists and locals engaging in al fresco dining and outdoor festivals. Its strong sporting heritage is perhaps one of the many reasons why its appeal is so far-reaching, with the Principality Stadium holding up to 75,000 punters and match days instilling the city with an extraordinary atmosphere that simply has to be experienced. Add to this the fact that the city is home to one of the UK's most prestigious universities with a booming student population and you can see why Cardiff appeals to people of all ages and genders.

As one of Britain's top 10 shopping destinations, Cardiff seriously delivers when it comes to retail therapy. At the heart of the city lies the St David's Shopping Centre, where popular high street stores and restaurants are housed in a light and airy mall that makes shopping there a surprisingly stress-free experience. Vintage treasures and one-off pieces are best sought out in The Castle Quarter, where Victorian shop fronts exude a feel of times gone by and won't fail to draw you in. If you're after something a little more edible then a visit to the Grand Victoria Arcades is a must. The striking glass-roofed structure hosts an array of market stalls selling everything from meat and fish to fresh fruit and veg, with plenty of sweetshops and bakeries thrown in for good measure.
