There’s so much to explore in and around Cardiff that you’ll never be short of something to see and do! Whether you prefer browsing the many shops and boutiques, discovering the country’s past in one of the impressive castles, or trying your hand at a new watersport at the Bay – there’s something here for all ages and tastes! Sometimes the best way to get to grips with a new city is to take an organised tour, led by someone who knows about all the ins-and-outs and where the best hidden treasures are. There are plenty of tours and guides to choose from, including the well-known Hop-on Hop-off bus system and the Cardiff Road train that’s hugely popular with younger kids. Teenagers will love the thrill of the Creepy Cardiff Ghost Tour and the whole family will enjoy a ride on the Cardiff Bay Cruise, which departs from the marina every evening.

Celebrate any occasion at the stunning waterside Turkish restaurant, Bosphorus. The dishes are authentic and beautifully prepared but it’s the atmosphere that makes this place so special. Enjoying its very own pier, the eatery looks out over the water from every side and the lucky ones placed on the outdoor table can enjoy spectacular views in a cosy and warming atmosphere. In keeping with a water-based evening, head to Salt bar after dinner, where you’ll find comfy sofas and exquisite drinks in a nautical-style setting. The open-roofed terrace allows you to admire the yachts resting in the peaceful bay.
