Encompassing a sleek, redeveloped waterfront and a grand castle that looks straight out of a children’s picture book, Cardiff is a fascinating blend of the modern and historic. It’s a particularly family-friendly destination, with performance venues putting on epic musicals and powerful plays, a hands-on science museum that will set young minds alight, and galleries showcasing art by titanic figures. And then, of course, there’s the nightlife, with restaurants serving dishes from Portugal to Persia, and clubs that will have you bopping your head into the early hours. No matter what kind of city break you’re looking for, Cardiff holiday rentals will make you feel a part of Wales’ buzzing capital.
While you can always bed down in a hotel, if you’d like more than just a place to crash every night, then Cardiff holiday rentals are the answer. One of the biggest benefits is cost. Cardiff holiday apartments are likely to have significantly lower rates than standard hotels, and you’ll get much more for your money. Instead of being limited to a single guestroom, you can sit back in a spacious living room, and cook up a storm in a proper kitchen whenever you feel like it. On top of that, there’s the unrivalled privacy that comes with having your very own home away from home.
Want to take the kids somewhere that will blow their minds? Try Techniquest, a true Cardiff institution, where interactive games will challenge their ingenuity and bring science to colourful life. Or, for a more tranquil cultural adventure, take a tour through the National Museum Cardiff, where you can take in the sculpture-like splendour of a whale skeleton, as well as works by masters including Renoir, Monet and Van Gogh. Meanwhile, the past has been preserved at St Fagans National Museum of History, where lush parklands are dotted with lovingly re-built buildings from across the ages. But the most obvious and iconic historical structure of them all is Cardiff Castle, which is a surreal sight among the shops and restaurants of the city centre. Inside, you’ll find regal, opulent chambers and the original Norman keep. Over towards the bay, another major draw is the Wales Millennium Centre, whose vast copper dome is adorned with vast letters spelling out poetry, and where you can see plays, musicals and other live performances close to your holiday apartment in Cardiff.
You won’t have to worry about navigating your way through Cardiff. The urban centre is eminently walkable, and there are plenty of buses that can whisk you to other attractive areas in the city, such as Roath Park, where boating on the lake is a popular pursuit on warm days. That said, you might want to consider hiring a car if you fancy seeing more of South Wales. The Ancient Roman attractions of Caerleon are worth visiting, while a day trip to the Brecon Beacons will present a lush, green landscape of undulating hills.
