Trip Summary
3 nights in Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It is also its most populous city and the epicenter of political, economical, social, and cultural life in Wales. With over 20 million visitors arriving each year, it is easily Wales`s most-visited tourist destination. In the early 19th century, the small town of Cardiff experienced a meteoric rise as one of the principal ports in the British Empire, and the area around the port is now a noteworthy tourist area which is home to such buildings as the Welsh National Assembly, the Pierhead Building, and the Millennium Centre. Other noteworthy sights include the BBC Drama Centre in the city center, where such TV shows as the dramas Casualty and the Welsh-language Pobol y Cwm are recorded; and the city`s two grand cathedrals: Cardiff Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Llandaff Cathedral (Anglican), the latter dating from the 12th century. Cardiff Castle was built on the site of a 3rd-century Roman fort; the castle we see today also dates from the 12th century.

Wales

With such beautiful valleys, mountain peaks, and shoreline, Wales is considered one of the most picturesque parts of the United Kingdom. The Welsh culture is one that is on display everywhere you look, from the capital, Cardiff, where hundreds of years of history meet modern-day innovation, to the valleys of Glamorgan, to the beautiful north where mountains such as Mount Snowdon are just a short drive away from gorgeous seaside resorts such as Llandudno. Visit the beautiful castles, enjoy hiking and nature-watching, or enjoy such recreational activities as horseback riding and golf. Wales has quite a few options for those looking for a charming and breathtaking getaway.
