Sports & Adventure Cardiff

Cardiff International White Water

With one of Europe’s finest sporting arenas in the heart of the city centre, the match day atmosphere in Cardiff is second to none, and one of the reasons why Cardiff has become one of Europe’s most popular sporting destinations.

International Sport

The towering Millennium Stadium put Cardiff on the world sporting map thanks to hosting the Rugby World Cup and six FA cup finals, and each year plays host to world class rugby with the Six Nations, World cup Qualifying football and motor sports including Speedway.

Thanks to the city's other stadiums - SWALEC Stadium, City Stadium and the new Athletics Stadium, Cardiff has never been a better destination to come and watch or take part in sports and activities. For more information on Rugby, Football or Cricket in Cardiff, click here.


If you're visiting Cardiff and would prefer to be in on the action, rather than just watching, there are a range of activities and adventure sports available. Paint-ballingquad-biking and climbing activities are all available in and around Cardiff.

As well as this, there's plenty of opportunity to get onto the water at Cardiff International White Water Centre. Based in the International Sports Village, it's the UK's first on-demand White Water facilty. As well as this, Cardiff Bay, a 200 hectare freshwater lake lets you try kayaking, sailing and windsurfing, with Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre. See more about watersports here.

If you've still got energy after that you can always try cycling the 88 mile Taff Trail, a few rounds of golf on the Ryder Cup course or join the annual Cardiff half-marathon!
