Cardiff

Cardiff is a great place to come for a quick trip or a family vacation.

It is an area of Wales that roughly 300,000 people reside in.

Rediscover the joys of childhood at Barry Island Pleasure Park and Doctor Who Experience. Parc All Weather Play and Bowlplex Cwmbran are also well worth checking out if the little ones still have energy to burn.

Your kids will have a ball checking out the big and the small inhabitants at Falconry UK. Be sure to ask the staff about feeding times and where to find the zoo's favorite specimens.

To truly taste what this region is made of, be sure to visit the Parva Farm Vineyard. Tour the wine presses and barrel rooms and learn how sommeliers recognize quality drops. If you find something you particularly love, purchase a bottle or two as a souvenir.

Admire an eclectic collection of plants as you meander around the sprawling grounds of the Dyffryn Gardens and Arboretum.

Bring along a bite to eat and enjoy some time to yourself in the peaceful, green surroundings of Victoria Park and Bute Park. You'll also find plenty of room to lie down in the grass at Roath Park and Sophia Gardens.

At a loss as to what to see next? You're certain to come upon some fun ideas at The Visit Caerphilly Centre and Cardiff Tourist Information Centre.

Are you looking to take some time out by the sea? Load up a bag with some delicious snacks and claim a nice spot at Barry Island Beach.

Leave your phone in the glove compartment and have a rest from the noise of the modern world at Bryngarw Country Park and Lower Blaen y Glyn. Nature lovers will also have a wonderful time at Twmbarlwm Mountain and Newport Wetlands.

You're sure to discover lots of interesting artifacts and stories at the many cultural establishments here. The best three places to visit are the Doctor Who Exhibition, the Big Pit National Coal Museum and the National Museum Cardiff.

View impressive artifacts and learn about scientific breakthroughs at the Techniquest.

The collection of specimens and curiosities at the Museum of Welsh Life provide a captivating glimpse into unknown worlds.

An oasis for art lovers, this area is home to various spaces in which amateurs and professionals exhibit their work. Swing by the Turner House Gallery and the Ffotogallery and see the best of what this creative destination has to offer. If you can fit them in, the Cardiff National Museum & Gallery and the La Mostra Gallery are also well worth a look.

History comes alive at the National Museum Wales and the St Fagans thanks to their excellent range of thoughtful exhibits. Do you like the sound of those? Continue your journey at the Blaenavon Community Heritage and Cordell Museum and the St. Fagans Walk.

To find out more about the people and places of this region's past, consider visiting its remaining historical sites. Start your history tour at Tintern Abbey or the Cardiff University. You might also like to pull out the camera for some photos at Tredegar House and Cardiff City Hall.

Newport Transporter Bridge is a grand structure that has provided an important crossing for residents from both sides of the water.

Insole Court is a grand time capsule, featuring some of the best architecture and design in the region.

After a day at Cardiff Castle or Castell Coch, you might just feel like you've traveled back to the days of drawbridges and dungeons! Caerphilly Castle and Chepstow Castle are two more fascinating historic monuments.

The region's spiritual side can be glimpsed at Llandaff Cathedral and St. John the Baptist Church. You might also like to take a walk around Norwegian Church or Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral of St David.

Before you pack up your bags and head off home, be sure to check out some of Cardiff's lesser-known attractions. Two great places to begin with are the Chepstow Racecourse and Trelai Park. If you have more time to spare, also check out Roald Dahl Plass or the TeamSport Cardiff.
