8 Great Tourist Attractions in Cardiff

by - 09:44



I used to say that living in Cardiff was boring as there isn't much to do, but realistically, it is the capital of Wales and there absolutely loads of great places to visit. Exploring your city like a tourist can be so fun, and it will help you view Cardiff with another pair of eyes.

Here, I take a little look at some of the best tourist attractions that Cardiff has to offer. You'll be amazed at how much fun you can have at these.

National Museum- When I was younger, I used to absolutely love going to the museum. There is so much there such as great artwork and the biggest fake mammoth you will ever see. My favourite part of the museum used to be watching the window of ants doing their hard-work at leaf collecting, just like Bugs Life. Oh, but the museum is actually closed on Mondays, I found this out the hard way.

Cardiff Castle- Who'd have thought that a town centre could have a great, huge Norman castle bang in the centre? Well Cardiff has exactly that. I keep meaning to go back here as I love it! The décor and interior is so beautiful and sometimes, they even have some great events going on throughout the week, so it worth checking that out. If not, then the Cardiff Castle tour is always a great way to spend the day with adults priced at £12.50.

Principality Stadium-  If there isn't anything going on while you're visiting Cardiff, then that really is such a shame because they host some great events - I saw Beyonce earlier this week on behalf of work, and she was incred. You can always take a tour if you still want to experience the stadium - £12.50 for adults!

Cardiff Story Museum- Everyone loves a free activity, right? Discover Cardiff's history in the Old LIbrary where there is a completely free, interactive and fun gallery awaiting. It is so interesting to see how Cardiff has changed over the years; developing from a small market town in the 1300s to the cool, cosmopolitan city that it is today.

Roath Park- I am so lucky to have this is within walking distance from my front door. When my dog was alive, I’d head down to the lake pretty much all of the time. At the end of the day, it is just a park but it is a lovely stroll, especially in summer around the lighthouse. You can even jump onto a pedalo or canoe for a nice ride with the ducks!

Wales’ Millennium Centre- My favourite building in Cardiff! Head down to Cardiff Bay for the great event centre, where some of Cardiff's top theatre events take place. I saw Titanic just a few weeks ago and that was truly wonderful. Thankfully, I have Wicked coming up soon which will be another great night. You can take a wander around the centre during the day and there is a gift shop, coffee shop and even a top-rated restaurant called Ffresh.

Cardiff Bay- Even if you don’t particularly want to see the Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay is a lovely place for a stroll, especially in the sun. If you are into Torchwood, then visit Lanto’s Shrine, or, jump onto the water taxi and have a ride over to the Barrage. There are plenty of bars and restaurants here too and it really is so beautiful in the summer.

St Fagan’s National Museum of History- This is definitely my favourite place in Cardiff yet I always somehow forget about it when I am trying to think of things to do. It is a small village of over 40 buildings from different time periods- it still smells like old times! Plus there is a museum with loads of different bibs and bobs too. Oh and also, there are pigs and sheep roaming about which is always great as I love animals. Plus, they often have food stalls too so perhaps check out when their next food fest is.
