Cardiff

The capital of Wales, Cardiff is a vibrant city that manages to remain fiercely proud of its rich history while keeping its feet firmly planted in the 21st Century. Wander around the streets and you’ll find cosmopolitan shopping malls that rub shoulders with quirky markets and  first-class restaurants competing with traditional bakeries, all overlooked by the imposing stonework of Cardiff Castle.

Cardiff highlights

Book a flight to Cardiff with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city that is humming with great music, ancient myths, and an undeniable sense of romance. However, it’s the people that make visiting Cardiff an experience to remember. Friendly, funny and always ready to tell a story, you’ll find a warm, Welsh welcome wherever you go.

  • Tourist attractions

    The city is consistently voted as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK, and with a wealth of things to see and do, it’s not hard to see why. The first stop on your visit to Cardiff ought to be the Wales Millennium Centre. A huge, arena-style building, it hosts artistic events of all shapes and sizes, from theatre, sports and musicals to small-scale art exhibitions and markets. A perfect evening out for the whole family.

    For something a little quieter, why not head over to the Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve? A man-made sanctuary for birds and wildlife, the reserve has been formed from reclaimed salt marshes. By paying it a visit you can swap the hustle and bustle of city life for a peaceful walk with plenty of wildlife-spotting opportunities. Swans, heron, cormorants, coots and ducks have all made their homes here, providing a tranquil-yet-exciting environment for anyone with a love of the Great Outdoors.

  • Leisure activities

    Just along Cardiff Bay lies the International Sports Village, where you’ll find an extensive array of sporting activities on offer. If your travels to Cardiff have invigorated you to the point where you fancy a challenge, there’s the opportunity to take part in some white-water kayaking on man-made runs. With courses available for everyone from beginners to seasoned experts, it’s fun, fast, foamy and furious.

    If you’re travelling to Cardiff to soak up some of its history, a visit to Cardiff Castle is in order. Conveniently located in the centre of the city, the castle is a fairytale collection of moss-strewn walls, twisting spires and formidable ramparts. The 11th century Norman castle is built on the site of a third  century Roman fort, and provides a fascinating insight into the region’s past, with opportunities to explore the elegant castle apartments, the winding tunnels beneath, and even see a functioning trebuchet in action.

  • Food

    The Welsh are a nation of food-lovers and sampling a few of the local delicacies is a must when travelling to Cardiff. Look out for ‘bara lawr’ – also known as laverbread, which is edible seaweed traditionally served with shellfish on hot buttered toast.

    However, while the Welsh have their own cuisine, Cardiff is also home to a thriving Indian community, and curries have been adopted as one of the city’s favourite foods. As a result, there is an astonishing number of Indian restaurants in the city centre, serving regional Indian dishes made from local Welsh produce.

  • Shopping

    If you plan to shop while visiting Cardiff, the city centre’s the place to go. There you’ll find the Dewi Sant shopping centre - Cardiff’s largest. This is the place for high-end designer goods such as clothes, homeware and electronics. It’s also home to some excellent restaurants, serving everything from burgers to sushi.

    However, it’s not all high-end fashion houses and modern malls. Nearby, there are some quirky Victorian shopping arcades selling local food, arts and crafts.
