Cardiff Castle lies moments from the Hilton Cardiff and is home to incredibly opulent rooms, air raid tunnels that date back to the Second World War and the remains of a Roman wall.
The National Museum Cardiff focuses on art, natural history and geology, while Techniquest in the heart of Cardiff Bay offers plenty of fun ways to learn about science via hands-on exhibits.

While Cardiff is a vibrant city with plenty happening in and around the centre, there are also a large number of open spaces to enjoy. Escape the crowded city streets by wandering into Bute Park for a stroll by the banks of the River Taff. The 130 acres of landscaped gardens and parkland once formed the grounds of Cardiff Castle.
Relax by wandering down tree-lined avenues and perhaps find time to view the impressive collection of trees at Bute Park Arboretum. If you're feeling a little more active, head to Blackweir playing fields where you'll find an array of fitness equipment.
Also be sure to check out the Animal Wall, situated at the southern end of the park on Castle Street. This delightful wall featuring carvings of various animals from apes to a bear was originally erected in the 1890s.
