The city of Cardiff is an ideal holiday destination for sports fans, history buffs or lovers of wildlife. Hotels in capital cities are bound to be pricey, but have you considered renting accommodation as an alternative? How about a spacious apartment in the vibrant city centre, or a house on the outskirts, within easy reach of picturesque countryside? You won't have to eat out every day, as you can prepare meals at your leisure in a fully equipped kitchen. There will be more space for the family, and more opportunity to relax.
The capital city of Wales offers a host of attractions, from the Cardiff International White Water Centre or the ice rink to historic castles and houses. A visit to Cardiff Castle is a must; you can't fail to be impressed by the Roman walls, medieval halls and Norman keep. The spanking new Cardiff Story Museum shows the history of the city over the past two hundred years, and entry is free. Take a guided tour of the art galleries at Cardiff National Museum, or a boat tour around the city and Cardiff Bay. In July you can enjoy the International Food and Drink Festival, or in September the Great British Cheese Festival. There is no shortage of events to entertain you.
Be sure to take your budding scientists to Techniquest in Cardiff Bay; it's a hands-on science centre with gadgets, puzzles and experiments. Doctor Who fans mustn't miss the Doctor Who Close-Up exhibition at the Red Dragon Centre, which also houses a cinema, Hollywood Bowl and a great choice of eateries. In fine weather, head to Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre for jet ski displays, water polo tournaments, and yachting competitions. Not far from the city, Taff Valley Quad Bike and Activity Centre is the place to go for clay shooting, archery and gorge walking in Brecon Beacons. Rope ladders and zip wires abound at Go Ape! High Wire Forest Adventure, and on a rainy day you can keep the children amused at TeamSport Indoor Karting.
