As the capital city of Wales, it's little surprise there are a plethora of interesting and exciting things to do in Cardiff. Whether you're looking to entertain the kids, enjoy a romantic break, or have a weekend away with the girls or the lads, Cardiff has something for everyone.
Get to grips with Cardiff's heritage with a visit to Cardiff Castle. With a history dating back over 2,000 years, encompassing the Romans, Normans and Victorians, it's a fascinating insight into the city and a great way to start any break in Cardiff. With exciting events and workshops, kids will love their visit too, and that's before they get to try on soldiers' uniforms!
If that's not enough of a cultural fix, you can also take a look around the National Museum, just a short walk from Cardiff Castle. This is a great indoor attraction and place for kids and families to explore everything from natural history to art and archaeology.
For some competitive family fun, you can also head to Treetop Adventure Golf which, with two 18-hole mini-golf courses to play, is a great option for a rainy day.
Once you've learnt about the city's history, see present-day Cardiff with a City Sightseeing tour. The bus can be picked up from the Castle and will take visitors to major sights including Cardiff Bay, Mermaid Quay and the Principality Stadium.
Cardiff is also the perfect destination for both stag and hen parties, with a whole host of great activities and days out on offer. Have a blast with Countrywide Paintball, or get involved in some competitive sightseeing with Huntfun Cardiff. For something even more challenging, Xtreme Events offers several different activity ideas, from bubble football to cocktail making and disco dodgeball.
