Places to go in Cardiff

Stuck for something to do or see around the city? Let us give you the inspiration you need to put some fun into a mundane Sunday afternoon or Tuesday night.

Cardiff is just the right size city - big enough to find everything that you'll need from the finest shops to great restaurants but small enough to be friendly.

The compactness of the city centre means that everything is within an easy walking distance and the sheer profusion of shops makes it a treat for the seasoned bargain hunter or browser. Check out Cardiff's famous arcades for a change from the usual high street names.

Cardiff is a brilliant place for grown-ups and kids of all ages...

Cardiff Bay

No more mud flats, Industry or sailors but you can get a great Capuccino at Pontcanna-on-sea and eat kebabs at a restaurant on stilts. Take a look at the 'Torchwood' office, see the barrage and explore a lightship.
