Explore Cardiff Bay attractions from your own holiday letting
The waterfront area of the Welsh capital, Cardiff, was redeveloped in the 1990s to form Cardiff Bay. Old industrial buildings were dismantled to create a modern and attractive new area, complete with apartments, bars, restaurants, and visitor attractions. While staying in a Cardiff Bay apartment, you'll surely reap the benefits of this new part of the city.
Cardiff Bay culture
Cardiff Bay is home to one of Wales's most important cultural venues, the Millennium Centre. Opened in 2004, the arts centre is home to the Welsh National Orchestra, Opera, and Dance Company, and the Arts Council for Wales. It regularly hosts shows by touring companies and performers in its three theatres. If rock music is more to your taste, you'll be thrilled with Cardiff Bay's selection of bars offering live music. You'll also want to check out the Glee, where the biggest names in UK comedy have performed.
Dahl and Doctor Who
Cardiff is very proud of children's writer Roald Dahl, one of the city's most famous sons, and Cardiff Bay celebrates his glittering literary career in some rather unusual ways. Take a seat on the Enormous Crocodile Bench on Cardiff Barrage, created in honour of one of Dahl's most beloved characters. Every September 13th, the area hosts events to celebrate Roald Dahl Day, commemorating the author's birthday.
Cardiff Bay's main attraction, however, is the Doctor Who Experience. Dedicated to Doctor Who and spin-off series Torchwood, which were filmed in Cardiff Bay, the Doctor Who Experience lets you climb aboard the TARDIS or get up close with villains such as the Daleks and the Cybermen.
Explore Cardiff Bay
Whereas the area's industrial heritage may have vanished from the waterfront, there is one historic building still standing in Cardiff Bay: the Norwegian church. Many Norwegian sailors settled and worked in Wales, and they built their own wooden clapboard church in 1888. The church itself has been renovated, and now houses a café. It also boasts a connection to famous writer Roald Dahl, who was born in Cardiff and christened in the tiny church.
Despite being located in the centre of Cardiff, the waterfront area is just a short walk from Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve, a wilderness area crisscrossed by gravel paths and home to several species of plants, animals, and birds. Boat trips are a popular way to explore Cardiff Bay and the surroundings. Head out to Flat Holm, an island five miles offshore that has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In addition to being the home of diverse wildlife, it's also where Marconi received the first radio message broadcast across water in 1897.
