Just north of the city, and nearby to the hotel, the magnificent Caerphilly Castle stands as Britain’s second largest castle, after Windsor. Typical of its time, Caerphilly is surrounded by a grand moat and sits within 30 acres of land. The leaning tower is a humorous spectacle and looks especially peculiar after the sun has set and the castle is lit up from underneath. Every summer the grounds fill up with street entertainers, funfair rides, and crowds of spectators for The Big Cheese festival. The festival attracts people from all over the country, of all ages to marvel at the breath-taking scenery and all the goings-on that take place within it. It is a feast for the senses, as well as an educational insight into the cultural and heritage past of the region, and best of all – it’s free!
If you seek adventure and thrill on holiday, Cardiff will not disappoint. From the huge fresh water lake and forests to the beaches and mountains, there’s an activity or sport suited to everyone’s tastes. The nearby Atlantic Wharf Leisure Village in Cardiff Bay offers families, beginners and experts the chance to try a host of water-based activities, including sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, kayaking and power-boating. If you’re not up for it yourself, you can relax on the side lines and admire family or friends out on the water from the warmth of one of the cafés or restaurants along the Bay. There are also a number of arts centres and museums for those that want to keep their feet on dry land.
