Get to know the unique flavor of Wales when you choose one of our Cardiff hotels, which feature views of Cardiff Bay, access to the city center, and easy transfers to the airport.
The capital of Wales - known as Caerdydd in Welsh - Cardiff sits on the Celtic Sea. A small settlement formed centuries before the Christian era, Cardiff grew considerably through waves of history, especially after its docks were built in the 19th century. Today, it remains a proud center for Welsh culture.
A Norman stronghold whose foundations were laid in the 11th century, Cardiff Castle has played a role in the city’s history for 1,000 years. Now home to a museum and interpretive center, the castle opens a window into the lives the families that owned, fought, and lived there. For grounding in the Welsh spirit, the National History Museum at St. Fagans and the National Museum and Gallery of Wales are also must-visits.
It may be an ancient city, but Cardiff’s shopping is anything but. Get started on Queen Street and St. Mary’s Street, or give the large St. David’s Centre a try. For Victorian-flavored shopping, the High Street Arcade will help bring the past to life, or load up on organic produce at the Cardiff Center Market. Don’t miss Spillers Records, which claims to be the oldest record store in the world.
Suit up and head to Cardiff Arms Park, a famous destination for rugby fans. The city has a robust cricket and soccer sporting tradition as well.
The busy Cardiff Central train station and international airport will keep you well connected to your next destination, whether you’re headed out to explore the rest of beautiful Wales or it’s on to the European mainland.
