There's an air of excitement surrounding the capital city of Cardiff as it becomes ever more popular with visitors. It is an impressive city with a proud civic centre, a shopping centre which is a shopper's paradise where traditional shops co exist with brand new shopping malls. With excellent transport into the city, Cardiff is easily accessible from anywhere in South Wales. The Millennium Stadium is Cardiff's premier sporting venue and well worth a visit. Cardiff is renowned for its cultural activities, there is a very active drama, music and dance scene with a number of first class venues across the city a whole range and variety of theatres, and concert halls.
Make sure you visit the National Museum to view the art collection and you must take time visit Cardiff's newest development in Cardiff Bay which is now the seat of modern government in Wales. You must visit the modernistic Senedd (Parliament) building and the Millennium centre which houses the world renowned Welsh National Opera and Diversions Dance and plays host to world class musicals. Marry all of the above with the good hotels, restaurants and the lively night time scene and you want to return time after time
