I've been to Cardiff several times however decided on this trip to do a walking tour to help me better understand the city. The timing of the tour is great with an 11am start and takes two hours.

Cardiff is an old city which is undergoing serious development while holding its old architecture. The Cardiff castle is beautiful and if you go in it will show all the twists and eccentricities of its owners. The Bude park is serene. The arcades are beautiful and if you are shopping freak chances are you can be lost in it all... More

Cardiff centre was surprisingly (to me) open and green, and Nigel clearly knew his stuff. I was the only visitor on my tour, which became two blokes having a stroll and a chat! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and learned a lot about Cardiff, Wales and the origins of the word "Welsh". Would recommend to anyone with an interest in the... More
