Being the capital and also the largest city in Wales, Cardiff has plenty to offer every one of its visitors – whether you prefer to fill your day with browsing the shops, exploring ruined castles or watching a rugby game at the Millennium Stadium. Culture and history enthusiasts should not miss a visit to the National Museum Cardiff, which takes you back 4600 million years to discover the geological past of the country and its former natural residents. The museum itself is set amongst the other neo-Baroque, white stone buildings in the Civic Centre, neighbouring establishments such as the City Hall, the law courts and Cardiff University. All share the bordering lush green lawns and delightful flowerbeds which add a pop of colour to the striking Portland stone walls.
If you enjoy art or are looking for a souvenir or gift for a loved one at home, head to Craft in the Bay, a commercial gallery that showcases local artists’ work, and where you can pick up stunning pottery, textiles, jewellery, woodwork and glassware. The detail and craftsmanship in every piece is breath-taking and each one makes for an excellent and truly unique gift. You can occasionally even get the opportunity to speak to the artists themselves and find out more about the creative process behind the items. Or if you’d like to have a go yourself, the centre also puts on workshops throughout the year.
