In no particular order:

St Fagan's museum of Welsh life - lovely day out and interesting, mostly open air

National Museum of Wales - great impressionist art collection and geology exhibit

Castell Coch - pretty and a nice walk

Cardiff Castle

Roath Park - rowing on the lake

Bute Park - lovely walks/cycling and a great place for lunch/afternoon tea in Pettigrew Tearooms

Llandaff Cathedral

Caerleon Roman remains (30 mimute drive) - worth a trip out

Are you planning on heading out of Cardiff at all? There are other suggestions if you are mobile like Big Pit the coal museum...

Also visit the Millennium Stadium, and the civic centre - Cardiff University, City Hall etc. There's also Cardiff Bay and you can get the boat over to Penarth. In the Bay there's the Norwegian Church which is a pretty place to visit, and they do great cake.

Obviously many many great pubs to visit also ;)

I hope I am not being rude, but what suggestions would people have if you have a car and don't mind driving an hour or so to see good stuff. Honestly, just looking for any "must sees" near Cardiff.

My apologies to the original poster if I have "hijacked" your thread.

MCCAD Definitely worth seeing are:

1) the Roman remains at Caerleon http://www.caerleon.net/intro/

2) Tredegar House: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tredegar-house/

3) Chepstow/Tintern and the Wye Valley: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wye_Valley cadw.wales.gov.uk/daysout/chepstow-castle/…

cadw.wales.gov.uk/daysout/tinternabbey/…

4) The Brecon Beacons http://www.beacons-npa.gov.uk/

5) Big Pit http://www.museumwales.ac.uk/en/bigpit/

Also both to you and nigelwilk_10 do not miss the National Museum in Cathays Park, Cardiff. The most extensive Impressionist Art Collection in Europe outside Paris: http://www.museumwales.ac.uk/cy/cardiff/

Hope that helps! Jim

Do go to St Fagans to get a true picture of how Cardiff was and is - set in stunning scenery and only a few minutes from the City Centre - all outdoors too for this beautiful weather -
