About the location


Penarth 5 miles; Barry 9 miles; Newport 15 miles;

The capital city of Wales has much going for it as the destination for an exciting and memorable holiday. A vibrant city, Cardiff offers a fabulous selection of shopping facilities, from high street chains to independent shops and galleries. There are plenty of pubs, restaurants, and cafes, along with a growing street food scene ensuring you’re never far away from tasty fresh cuisine. A range of nightclubs and bars mean the city stays open long into the night. Theatres, galleries, museums and venues offering live music mean visitors seeking culture are well catered for, while sports fans will love visiting the Millenium Stadium or Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre. Cardiff Bay is a wonderful place to while away the day, perhaps visiting the Senedd, home to the National Assembly of Wales, or taking a boat trip round the harbour, before indulging in some laidback waterfront dining in one of the many bars and restaurants. For sci-fi fans, the Dr Who Experience is one not to be missed. Should you wish to head out of the city, you will not be disappointed. The cities of Swansea and Bristol, the Brecon Beacons National Park, Forest of Dean and the Pembrokeshire coastline are all an easy day trip away.
