Visit Cardiff Castle where you can explore over 2,000 years of history. Originally the site of a Roman fortress, the grounds today are dominated by the dramatic Norman Keep. Take a guided tour of the Castle Apartments ( 50 mins) to appreciate the spectacularly lavish Gothic – Revival interiors, created for the Third Marquess of Bute by art- architect William Burges in the 19th century. Together they created a Welsh Victorian ‘Camelot’.
On leaving the Castle, a brief stroll through Bute Park, formerly the pleasure gardens of Cardiff Castle, brings you to the water taxi stop for the Princess Katherine and a leisurely cruise down to Cardiff Bay. Nowadays, Cardiff Bay is a bustling waterfront, a centre for arts and culture, with an amazing choice of bars and restaurants for your group to relax and refuel.
You and your group can really add something special to your experience by choosing a backstage tour of this world- class arts centre. Follow in the footsteps of the stars or if you book ahead, take in an evening show – anything from the latest shows straight out of the West End to opera, ballet and the world-class concerts.
An iconic building at the waters’ edge, former place of worship for Norwegian sailors and the church where Roald Dahl was christened, the Norwegian Church today is a superb place to take a break, enjoy a coffee, a bite to eat, or afternoon tea with panoramic views of the bay.
