What to see in Cardiff

If you're a history buff, consider booking a hotel near Cardiff Castle. The famous landmark is conveniently located in the city centre. At the top of the castle tower, visitors can enjoy stunning views of the area. Inside the castle is an opulent interior with many intriguing exhibits. Explore more of ancient Wales by visiting the St. Fagans National Museum of History, a large outdoor museum that depicts the history of Wales through various time periods. Another historical experience takes you on a short trip north to Caerphilly Castle, Britain's second-largest castle that contains an impressive set of fortification works.

Cardiff has plenty of options to keep you entertained. For those who love sports, there's nothing like watching a football or rugby match at the Millennium Stadium, the hotspot for all sports events in the city. From the waters at Cardiff Bay, you enjoy a good view over iconic buildings such as the Norwegian Church, Pierhead, or Westlands Nature Reserve. Stop by Craft in the Bay for the latest exhibitions of Welsh craft artists. Complete your cultural expedition with a visit to the Chapter Arts Centre, a combined studio and performance space for various artistic mediums. The in-house cafe and bar is an ideal social place to interact with various creative types.

Where to stay in Cardiff

Find an affordable hotel in Cardiff's city centre, and you'll be within walking distance of the Cardiff Central Market where an abundance of souvenirs, food, and handmade decorations are on sale. For those who enjoy a bit more quiet, look for a hotel in the Riverside area. Although only a stone's throw away from various bars and restaurants, hotels and apartments here offer a tranquil atmosphere that is ideal for relaxation after a tiring day exploring. From here, you can easily reach the chic Pontcanna district on foot, or enjoy the green oasis of Cooper’s Field.

If you're more fond of nature and prefer a break from all of Cardiff's touristy spots, take a look at a cheap hotel in the Llanedeyrn area. Llanedeyrn lies on the northern outskirts of the city near the river and several parks, and is conveniently close to the airport. You won't find a lot of bars, fancy restaurants, or major attractions here as it's a more residential district, but it's easy to find good chain hotels offering affordable, unpretentious rooms with complimentary tea and coffee, and free Wi-Fi.
