Travel | Cool Things to do in Cardiff for a Couple of Days





Cardiff is the largest city in Wales, as well as being the capital, so naturally, it’s also one of the most popular cities for tourists to visit. Along with its shopping centres and historic attractions, there are many things to attract visitors to Cardiff. Here are a few reasons why you’re going to want to book a weekend there some time soon...

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle has been used for a Roman Garrison, a Norman Stronghold and a Gothic Fantasy Palace. A tour of the castle is amazing in itself but why not take one of their Ghost Tours, Meet the Knights or attend the Grand Medieval Melee? These are all extra events put on at the castle that can let you see it from a different perspective.

Historic Pub Tour

There are organised tours around the historic pubs of the city, and there are quite a few of them all with their own story to tell a weary traveller like yourself. You can hear the tales from centuries ago celebrating the people of Wales.

Eating Out

Cardiff has no shortage of places to eat at while you are out and about, but some of them are a bit special. Of course, a lot depends on the type of food you are after, but for instance, if you want to eat at one of the best burger places in the UK then visit The Grazing Shed at one of its four Cardiff locations. Seriously, sometimes simple foods are the best and this is just one example of that being totally true.

Make Some Pots

Cardiff Pottery Workshops will assist you to make a pot or two. Learn how to handle the clay, what you need to do to be creative and how to finish your pots. The courses are usually a day, or you can just visit the potteries to watch the masters at work.

Sculpture Trail

The Sculpture Trail is designed to help connect children with nature as they follow the sculptures through the woodlands. There is a story attached to them and also mystical creatures and a wizard to look for.

Museums

Cardiff has 8 museums to choose from including the National Museum at the heart of the city. Much of this museum is dedicated to the history and evolution of Wales and the Welsh people are very proud of it.

The others are dedicated to a variety of different things, and every one them is worth a visit.

Sightseeing

No visit to a city such as Cardiff would be complete without some sightseeing. There is hop on hop off open-topped buses, the full journey on which can take most of a day. 

Among the sights to visit are Mermaid Quay, Roath Park, St David’s Cathedral, the Principality Stadium, Cardiff Bay and Bute Park.

There are so many things to do in Cardiff that it is impossible to list them all here. I have tried to pick some of the most popular and some of the more unusual so that you have some ideas for your trip to Cardiff, but be sure to explore the city to its fullest.
