must-sees in Cardiff


What are the must-sees in Cardiff? My friends are travelling to Cardiff for a week and has asked me to post this in the forum. They are travelling with 2 kids aged 9 and 7 and are used to museums and galleries and do a lot of walking.

Many thanks

You don't say whether they will have a car, which makes a difference as to what can be recommended.

That said, I would visit this place


and if they like walking, a trip to the Brecon Beacons


or travel to Swansea (can be done by train) and take the bus to the Gower


None of these places are IN Cardiff but they are accessible by public transport from there, and more easily by car.

Castell Coch

Museum of Welsh life

National Museum of Wales

Millennium Stadium

Hi Ramon.

Cardiff Bay: They might enjoy going down to Mermaid Quay and walking out to the Bay Barrage or maybe renting one of the bikes and cycling out there instead. Plenty to do in Cardiff Bay area including having a ride on the lovely carousel, visiting the excellent hands on science centre Techniquest and many other family friendly activities.

Museum of Welsh Life, St Fagans, Big Pit, have my vote and just wander through the arcades and market in Cardiff
