Places to stay in Cardiff

With a long history, amazing architecture and countless attractions to visit, the Welsh capital is fast becoming a favourite with tourists. Large pedestrianized areas and numerous green spaces make it a world away from the industrial city it once was.

Cardiff is also known as the "city of castles", with five different castles to visit in the area, alongside new developments like the Millennium Stadium and the National Assembly for Wales. As well as the attractions within the city, it offers easy access to the nearby wildernesses of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
