Cardiff, the capital and largest city of Wales, has a reputation as a city of castles, known perhaps best for Cardiff Castle, right in the middle of the city centre. It is also celebrated as the City of Arcades, home to the largest concentration of Victorian, Edwardian, and contemporary shopping arcades in Britain. In this compact and welcoming capital, you'll discover a vibrant tapestry of experiences — from pop up events to intimate gigs and global sporting spectacles. Cardiff's charm extends to its national museums, including the impressive castle that graces the cityscape, and a massive 76,000 seater stadium nestled right in the heart of the urban landscape. Noteworthy is Cardiff's role as the home of the devolved National Assembly for Wales, which you can visit if you find yourself near Cardiff Bay. Whether strolling through historic arcades or attending world class events, Cardiff promises a day out or great city break.
