Cardiff Flights Guide
The capital of Wales is no longer an industrial port. Today Cardiff is a modern, lively, cosmopolitan city, as well as a political, sporting and artistic centre of note. Aside from being the seat of the Welsh National Assembly and home to the Millennium Centre, where the Welsh National Opera is situated, the city also boasts a variety of arts centres, bars, restaurants and hotels, as well as the rejuvenated Victorian docklands area, known as Cardiff Bay. There's also and the popular waterfront area called Mermaid's Quay, which is lined with striking, modern buildings, chic shops and boutiques, bars, clubs and excellent restaurants. And let's not forget the magnificent Millennium Stadium, site of many sports events including the football games for the 2012 Olympics.
These fabulous modern facilities rub shoulders with some fascinating historic sites, including Cardiff Castle, built by the third Marquis of Bute, located in the centre of the city on a site that was once used by both the Romans and the Normans as a strategic point of defence. Other sights worth exploring include tranquil Llandaff Cathedral, St David's Hall, the outdoor Museum of Welsh Life and the National Museum and Gallery of Wales.
Outside the city you'll find a number of fascinating attractions, including some Neolithic sites that prove that this area has been inhabited for thousands of years.
