Cardiff

The Welsh capital may have begun its life as a Roman fort, but it’s since become a bustling city. Where the fort once stood, Cardiff Castle has held court since the 11th century. It remains a central presence in the city, now full of lively art and music venues, hip boutiques, fun bars and modern hotels. Even with so many new and exciting things to see, the National History Museum is still the most visited attraction in Wales. Don’t be the only visitor who plays hooky!
