The compact capital of Cardiff has everything you could need for a city break. With top shopping experiences, fine food and amazing nights out, you’ll have a staycation packed with adventure.

Only a kilometer square, Cardiff may be small but it has lots to offer. With Victorian and Edwardian Arcades criss-crossing the city, full of shops, restaurants and bars waiting to be discovered.

The Cardiff Market is a must-visit feature of the city. Full of local flavours there is something for all foodies, from coffee, to welsh cakes, meats and cheeses to locally sourced fish.

With tapas bars, street food outlets, fish restaurants or fine dining, you are never too far from a culinary experience in Cardiff.  

If you are looking for something a little more creative in your trip, you definitely need to visit the National Museum, which has the largest collection of Impressionist art outside of Paris – for free! With an ever changing exhibition list to discover throughout the year.

After a day exploring the city, you can escape the hustle and bustle and follow the coastline around to the Cardiff Bay Wetlands Nature Reserve from Mermaid Quay. Pick up a coffee and enjoy the leisurely stroll by the sea.
