Cardiff Castle

This legendary 11th-century castle sits in the heart of Cardiff, engulfed by the blissful meadows of Bute Park. Interspersed with elements of Gothic revival and Victorian architecture, this impressive Welsh landmark is steeped in nearly 2000 years of history. Exuding immense gravitas still, the Cardiff Castle was initially a Norman-era motte-and-bailey castle that transformed into a stone-built entity in the 12th Century, most likely at the behest of the 1st Earl of Gloucester. Its time-honored walls have been testament to years of conflict, but conceal within grandiose alterations that the third Marquess of Bute brought about, with help from renowned architect William Burges.

National Museum Cardiff

Wales' premier museum is an impressive, white stone building housing a number of separate exhibition rooms and art galleries.

There are sections on natural history, Celtic art and archaeology, while the Clore Discovery Centre offers activities, talks and a hands-on exhibition for all ages.

Roath Park

Located to the north east of the city, this huge park is Roath's focal point. At one end of the Roath Park is an immense boating lake with islands and a floodlit lighthouse, a tribute to Captain Scott who departed for Antarctica from Cardiff.

The summer months often see special events and guided walks taking place.
