Choose one of our Holiday Inn® Cardiff hotels to discover the culture-packed, food-loving Welsh capital. Stroll along the banks of the River Taff past the historic treasures at Cardiff Castle to the modern face of the city, Cardiff Bay.
It's just a short hop to the city center from your Cardiff hotel. From riverside Bute Park, you'll get the best views of neo-Gothic Cardiff Castle and its Norman keep. Two thousand years of history are layered beneath the castle's whimsical 19th-century apartments. Cardiff's major museums are free, including the cavernous National Museum Cardiff, its walls hung with French Impressionist paintings. Our hotels in Cardiff are close to the dynamic waterfront development of Cardiff Bay, where modern icons like the National Assembly for Wales (Senedd) catch the eye. Take the kids to the hands-on science center Techniquest. When the sun shines, swap the city for seaside fun and cotton candy at nearby Barry.
Our Cardiff hotels are close to Cardiff Bay. Here you can enjoy a good-value pub meal with a pint of locally brewed Brains bitter, or fresh seafood at an alfresco restaurant. Wander over to the redbrick Old Brewery Quarter for upbeat bars and world flavors, or Roath neighborhood for a late-night snack. Cardiff's cultural scene revolves around opera, ballet and musicals performed in the iconic Millennium Center—free concerts are staged at 1pm most days. Rugby is another Welsh passion, best experienced at gigantic Millennium Stadium on match days. Fresh cockles, creamy fudge, and hand-carved Welsh love spoons are on sale in Cardiff's Victorian arcades and indoor Central Market.
Book a room in our Cardiff hotels in summer for free outdoor concerts at the Cardiff Festival and orchestral highs at the Welsh Proms. Bute Park is ablaze with flowers in spring and fireworks in November.
