The small town which grew into the world’s busiest port – Cardiff – is a vibrant capital full of landmark architecture. There is a lively cultural, shopping and nightlife scene, especially on the redeveloped Cardiff Bay. One of the city’s biggest draws is Cardiff Castle, a mixture of Roman, Norman and Victorian architecture which until 1947 was the home of the Butes, the family who transformed the city. We’ll show you Wales’s natural history, geology, archaeology and art at the National Museum, the iconic Millennium Stadium and Plas Roald Dahl – a contemporary square home to the Millennium Centre and National Assembly. As well as the sights, we’ll introduce you to the warm, welcoming Welsh people. On a picturesque farm just outside the city, you’ll be able to explore and meet the animals before enjoying a home cooked lunch of traditional Welsh dishes, prepared with fresh ingredients local to the farm.

Mid Wales

Wales’s most unspoilt region is home to the Brecon Beacons National Park, a 520-square-mile expanse of undulating hills, glinting lakes, river valleys and tumbling waterfalls. Here you’ll find pretty market town Brecon, famous for its beautiful Norman cathedral. And Abergavenny, popular with food lovers who enjoy the annual food festival and regular markets. South east of Abergavenny are the splendid ruins of Tintern Abbey, one of the best-preserved medieval abbeys in Britain, where towering Gothic arches and intricate stonework have inspired poets and artists as famous as Wordsworth and Turner.
