Cardiff Holidays

This area of Monmouthshire is home to a population of 300 000 residents.

If you are looking to find the ideal holiday for the whole gang, then make sure you check out Cardiff. Drop in to have a look at Barry Island Pleasure Park or Doctor Who Experience. Parc All Weather Play and Bowlplex Cwmbran also boast a range of fun family activities for kids to enjoy.

If you and your family would like to study some rare and unusual animals, spend time at Falconry UK.

If you appreciate wine and want to learn all about the process of winemaking, why not arrange an afternoon at the Parva Farm Vineyard?

The Dyffryn Gardens and Arboretum is a wonderful site in Cardiff to have a moment's peace. Garden lovers will be especially happy ambling around and discovering the diverse plant species that flourish here.

Visitors to Cardiff are often jealous when they discover just how much green space there is here. Interested in living like a local? Victoria Park and Bute Park are both great spots in which to find a shady patch of grass. Alternate options are Roath Park and Sophia Gardens.

This region is the location of one or two information centres that are open to travellers looking for ideas on what to see and do. Regardless of which centre you decide on, when you and your family pass by The Visit Caerphilly Centre or Cardiff Tourist Information Centre, you will get some beneficial information for your itinerary.

Don't hit the road without a visit to the beautiful natural spot, Cwmtillery Lakes.

If you're looking to get outdoors for a while in this region, make sure you stop by Barry Island Beach. A much-loved bit of coastline, it's a terrific place to take a long walk or just lay back and enjoy the view.

Don't leave town without making your way to at least one of the local conservation areas. Two absolute rippers include Bryngarw Country Park and Lower Blaen y Glyn. Staying additional time? Then you'll want to consider Twmbarlwm Mountain and Newport Wetlands too.

You can bet you'll never be uninspired in this destination, especially due to the terrific range of museums to immerse yourself in. We recommend the Doctor Who Exhibition and the Big Pit National Coal Museum. If you have a bit more time to kill, we suggest you also take a trip to Penarth Pavilion and Welch Regiment Museum.

The Techniquest is a great local attraction that's aiming to put the fun back into science. Enjoy your time checking out the different collections and playing with the hands-on displays. If you're not careful, you just might learn something!

Visitors with an interest in history should be sure to stop by the Museum of Welsh Life while in Cardiff. With its accessible collections and cheery staff, it makes for a fascinating and educational way to spend an afternoon.

Keen to jazz up your life with a bit of colour? Cardiff has a range of art galleries that will rouse your senses. Be sure to visit the expertly curated displays at the Turner House Gallery and the Ffotogallery. Can't get enough? The Cardiff National Museum & Gallery and the La Mostra Gallery are a perfect way to end the day.

If you're a lover of history, we suggest that you take a walk through one of the numerous museums about town. You are guaranteed to emerge from the National Museum Wales and the St Fagans with an abundance of new knowledge. The Blaenavon Community Heritage and Cordell Museum and the St. Fagans Walk are also worth a look at if you have some time to burn.

This region is a unique mix of the new and old, providing history geeks a heap of attractions to go and visit. Spend a day or two doing your own tour of Tintern Abbey, the Cardiff University and Tredegar House. Cardiff City Hall is also worth visiting if you can squeeze it in.

Watch the water passing underneath Newport Transporter Bridge, one of the most interesting reminders of Cardiff's past. From atop of the riverbanks, you will find it easy to admire the structure's unique design, while marvelling at the quality craftsmanship responsible for the remarkable condition it is in to this day.

Get a look into how the aristocracy lived at Insole Court, one of the region's most opulent dwellings.

Whether you're a history aficionado or not, you're sure to be impressed by the majesty of the region's various castles. Chuck on some comfortable clothes, pack your camera and head out to explore the atmospheric halls of Cardiff Castle and Castell Coch. If time is on your side, you might also like to check out Caerphilly Castle and Chepstow Castle.

This region is well-known for its range of religious attractions. Llandaff Cathedral and St. John the Baptist Church are the most popular of these sacred sites, with Norwegian Church and Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral of St David coming in close behind.

You'll find a variety of other less well-known spots here for travellers who are keen to check out some more unassuming attractions. Travellers recommend the Chepstow Racecourse or Trelai Park as good spots to kill some time. You'll also want to consider a trip to see the TeamSport Cardiff and the Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre.
