24 Hours in Cardiff
Cardiff is the capital of Wales, it rains 270 days a year here, so it is very green everywhere you look. The people are friendly and chatty (with great accents). If you love hearty food, a distinct culture, the outdoors, cosy pubs, fascinating traditions and breathtaking scenery then Wales is for you. Cardiff is home to an abundance of historical houses and castles. Cardiff Castle is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Wales and for good reason. It houses over 2,000 years of history, from the Roman times to the present day. If you’re a Sport lover then Cardiff is a great place to visit. Home of Welsh rugby for more than a century, Cardiff is ideal for anyone wanting to get up close and personal with the game.
