Cardigan City Guide

Situated on the south west coast of Wales, close to beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the ancient town of Cardigan is a picturesque little port with activities catering to every taste. Recent efforts to regenerate the town and its quayside have successfully injected Cardigan with a new burst of life.

Cardigan’s compact size contributes to town’s distinctive summer holiday feel, along with its small but charming streets and colourful seaside houses. It has excellent shopping, wonderful heritage and many lovely places to eat, as well as fantastic beaches and even its own theatre. What more could you ask for in a seaside town?

Cardigan Castle 

Recently rescued from decay and reopened after extensive refurbishment, a visit to the 12th Century Cardigan Castle is a brilliant way to ignite your interest in this town’s fascinating past. While the remains of the castle itself are over 800 years old, this heritage gem also houses a superb Georgian country house and regency botanical gardens. Don’t miss your chance to visit to this eclectic cross-section of Cardigan’s history.

Festivals in Cardigan 

No trip to Wales would be complete without some local culture, and a trip to Cardigan’s annual Agricultural Festival is a great way to experience this. The festival began as a trade market in the 1800’s and has since evolved into a popular equestrian and farming event. On the day, horses are awarded various prizes before being paraded through the town along with vintage farm vehicles. Even if you don’t know anything about farming, this makes a great family day out, appealing to kids and animal enthusiasts alike.

Beaches in Cardigan 

While the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is on Cardigan’s doorstep, if you prefer your outdoor walks a little more relaxed, you’ll be pleased to discover two wonderful beaches just a short distance from Cardigan’s centre. Mwnt Beach and Poppit Sands are both hidden away among towering dunes. Poppit Sands is particularly lovely, combining the best of both worlds with white sands and excellent rock pools, making this ideal for the kids.

Theatre in Cardigan 

You might not expect to find an arts centre as diverse and high quality as Theatr Mwldan in a small town like Cardigan. Nevertheless, this three-screen cinema and arts hub is well equipped and is popular in both the town and throughout Ceredigion. As well as showing thousands of films a year, the arts centre puts on numerous productions and a range of cutting-edge exhibitions, events and eclectic concerts. What’s more is that it is completely not-for-profit. You’re bound to find something here to appeal to your creative tastes.
