Book your Cardiff holiday letting and discover all that is great about this historic yet contemporary gem.
Getting to Cardiff
Cardiff is accessible via Cardiff International Airport, which is located around 19km from the city centre. However, due to Cardiff’s good position within the UK, the city can also be easily reached via other major airports, including Manchester Airport and all airports in London. If coming via London, try to make it Heathrow, which is the closest airport and has a travel time to Cardiff of around two hours. Cardiff also has excellent train and bus links with most major cities around Great Britain.
Weather in Cardiff
Cardiff does receive less rainfall than other areas of Wales, but don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security; it does rain quite frequently in the Welsh capital, and you would be well advised to keep a good supply of waterproof clothing and umbrellas stashed in your Cardiff holiday home just in case. Spring and summer usually bring pleasant temperatures and sunny weather, but even the sunny days can be interrupted by the occasional rain shower.
Great things to do in Cardiff
History, culture, and an abundance of laid back areas make your Cardiff holiday home a great base from which to do some sightseeing and enjoy the best a city break has to offer.
The city’s most famous attraction is Cardiff Castle, which has a history that dates back to the 3rd century A.D. The castle that stands today was built in the 11th century and has been involved in some of the most important moments in British history, including the English Civil War of 1642. It’s a joy to explore, with many fascinating nooks and crannies throughout the structure. The highlight is the banquet hall, which is quite simply stunning.
A visit to St Fagans National History Museum is highly recommended. This open air museum is located just outside of Cardiff city centre and features a walk through historical Wales. It’s a large space, with many traditional buildings and a wealth of information about the houses in the grounds of St Fagans Castle.
No stay in your Cardiff holiday letting is complete without a trip to Bute Park, a large oasis in the city. This large area includes gardens and wide open spaces, which are great for summer picnics or just playing some games with the family. Dotted around the park are points of interest, including a Woodland Play Trail for youngsters and a QR trail, where you can guide yourself around the park with your smartphone. There’s also plenty of wildlife in the park, including woodpeckers, kingfishers, and tree creepers.
When you want a break from sightseeing, head to Cardiff Bay, which is home to more than hundreds of hectacres of redeveloped buildings. You’ll find offices, cafés, and restaurants, and it's a great place to while away a few hours on a warm summer afternoon.
