One of the most popular visitor destinations in Cardiff is Cardiff Castle, where you can discover 2000 years of history in the heart of the city. There two wonderful museums in Cardiff City Centre that you can explore for free, the National Museum and The Museum of Cardiff. The city centre is also home to the beautiful Bute Park, which was once the private gardens of the Bute family and is now a free public park.


We all enjoy a little wining and dining from time to time and Cardiff city centre has some super restaurants, plus a wide range of pubs and bars. Eat out with street food style at Coconut Treet, Pho Cafe or try the DEPOT socials. For a fast food feast, grab a gourmet burger from The Grazing Shed or Honest Burgers, or try Pieminister for an upmarket twist on the humble pie and pint. Lovers of fine food should try The Ivy or enjoy the architectural ambience at Chapel 1877. You’ll find cocktails galore at Be At One or Dirty Martini, while The Botanist offers a wide range of drink including craft ales.
