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.
