About the local area

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, Europe's youngest capital and one of the fastest-growing cities in Britain. Extensive re-development has given Cardiff world-class sporting and entertainment complexes. Add to this excellent shopping, diverse restaurants and plenty of art, history and culture, and Cardiff is an ideal destination to keep the family happy.

Wales is the land of castles, and Cardiff itself is home to a huge number of castles and historic sites. Cardiff's history dates back to Roman times, and Cardiff Castle, right at the heart of the city, is well worth a visit, from its magnificent Norman keep to the decadent and luxurious interiors of the Victorian castle.

When you visit Cardiff, you'll find the `big 3' attractions - Cardiff Castle, the Millennium Stadium and the National Museum all close to each other in the city centre. But there are great attractions to be found all over the city - on Cardiff Bay there's the Wales Millennium Centre and Techniquest, and on the outskirts of Cardiff you'll find the fairytale Castell Coch.

As with most of Wales, Cardiff has a growing reputation for fine dining. This is down to great local chefs, and even better local produce - Welsh lamb and beef, fresh seafood and organic vegetables. In the city's Brewery Quarter you'll find a range of great restaurants with an endless choice of cuisine.

If you come to Cardiff to shop, you won't be disappointed. Queen Street is the city's main shopping area, where you'll find your favourite high street shops. If you prefer everything under one roof, head to St David's Shopping Centre; and for unique boutiques and cafes, the Victorian Arcades are a must-see.

When it comes to sport, Cardiff is a genuine all-rounder. Cardiff is home to the world famous Millennium Stadium, home of Welsh football and rugby and the temporary home of the FA Cup final from 2001-2006. And for golf fans, the Celtic Manor Resort, just 20 minutes from Cardiff, will host the Ryder Cup tournament in 2010.

Cardiff's lively nightlife scene centres around St Mary Street, which has awide choice of bars, pubs and clubs all in one street. Greyfriars Road is home to great cocktail and wine bars, and Cardiff Bay is fast becoming the city's most popular spot for nightlife.

Nearby are the Valleys of South Wales which are known all over the world for their culture, heritage and warmth of welcome. They are a special part of Wales, with many qualities not found elsewhere - their unexpected beauty, their country parks and forests, their attractions, scenic footpaths and cycle trails and the largest castle in Wales.
