What's on in Cardiff Summer 2017

​Cardiff, the Capital of Wales, is Europe's greenest city. You'll be spoilt for choice of what to do. Cardiff is brimming with culture with its famous Roman, Norman and Gothic Castle, the National Museum of Wales, the Museum of Welsh Life, art galleries, exhibitions and theatrical performances at the inspiring Sherman Theatre and the Wales Millennium Centre. You'll be able to experience one of the oldest celtic languages around the city; why not try out a couple of Welsh phrases on the locals! How about taking a guided tour to learn more about the history and sights of this capital city.

Attractions include the magnificent Cardiff Bay. You can enjoy a coffee and ice-cream in one of its many cafés and restaurants and take a leisurely stroll around the bay path to reach the Norwegian Church, Doctor Who Experience and the Cardiff Bay Barrage. If you're travelling further afield the Brecon Beacons National Park, Caerphilly Castle, Barry Island and Wales' spectacular coastline and beaches are just a short drive away.

Cardiff promotes a healthly life-style and its sports facilities are second to none including the Principality Stadium, Swalec Stadium, International Pool, International White Water Centre, Boulders Climbing Centre, Ice Arena and the fantastic Taff Trail which runs for 55 miles from the centre of Cardiff up into the valleys where you can stop on the way to enjoy Castell Coch.

After its recent re-development Cardiff boasts a number of shopping centres and boutique arcades. Why not finish your day with a cold beer and a round of mini-golf at Treetop Adventure Golf located in St Davids 2. 

You'll be spoilt for choice of where to eat and drink in Cardiff, from artisan pizzerias in its leafy suburbs to bubbly nightlife in Mill Lane. For inspiration have a look at Visit Cardiff, Trip Advisor or Gourmet Gorro.
