Top 10 things to do in Cardiff

So, what does the capital really have to offer? Read our top 10 picks.

1) Cardiff Market

Under a great glass roof you will find a wealth of products, from pots and pans to rock and roll. It’s lush, we loves it! 

2) Chapter Arts Centre

With a cinema, gallery and theatre performances, Chapter is the heartbeat of creativity in Cardiff. 

3) Shopping Arcades

Nestled in the walls of the city, under a roof of classic Victorian architecture, explore the maze of local eateries and retailers

4) Principality Stadium

Standing proud in the city centre is the iconic stadium. Home of Welsh rugby, music concerts and stadium tours, it really is something special. 

5) Bute Park

Bute Park is the green heart of the city. Situated just behind the castle, there’s no better place in Cardiff (when the weather is on your side!) 

6) Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle is the historic heart of Wales’ capital city. One of Wales’ 400 castles, it’s not only survived the centuries but evolved with them in a fashion that few other sites can claim. 

7) National Museum Cardiff

The home of national art, geology and natural history collections as well as one of Europe’s best collections of Impressionist art. Experience all of this with free entry too! 

8) Ffwrnes Pizza

Based on the first floor of Cardiff market, Ffwrnes pizza is the best in town. Combining traditional Italian know how and the best produce Wales has to offer. 

9) Big Moose Coffee

This family run coffee shop sells epic coffee and great, homemade grub. The best part is that the profits go towards helping homeless and other disadvantaged people get back into work and society. 

10) Tiny Rebel

Exuding heritage, ambition and independence, Tiny Rebel Cardiff is as Welsh as the boys in the scrum on the field. Expect a selection of outstanding indie beers from a myriad of Craft Breweries, and a properly tidy time.
