Plan your journey from Cardiff AirportFrom the airport, it’s a breezy 30-minute drive to Cardiff city centre.
The most impressive historical attraction in the city is Cardiff Castle, which has been modified over the centuries. Admire the different influences (Roman, Norman and Bute) on the architecture, which provides an aesthetically pleasing insight into Welsh history.
The Welsh are a very keen sporting nation, so be sure to check out the timetable for the city’s Millennium Stadium during your visit. You might catch a game of rugby while you’re in the city. It’s also possible to book a stadium tour.
To escape the hustle and bustle of city life, head to Penarth – officially a suburb of Cardiff (which also doubles as a quaint Victorian seaside town). A walk along the esplanade and the pier area, followed by a coffee at a cafe overlooking the sea, promises a relaxing afternoon.

From Cardiff Airport, you’ll easily reach Bristol in just over an hour by taking the M4. An alternative, creative city, Bristol’s streets are awash with street art.

Just a little further east (and an hour and 40 minutes from Cardiff Airport) is Bath. Officially a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath is famed for its Roman and Georgian past – showcased on The Royal Crescent (a spectacular sweeping row of 30 terraced houses). Be sure to visit the Roman Baths, which are over 2,000 years old and draw on Britain’s only mineral hot springs. The Museum of Bath Architecture reveals more about the city’s development.
