Often overlooked by the crowds, Cardiff is a vibrant port city, worthy of its position among the capital cities of the UK and taking a coach to Cardiff gives you the opportunity to discover this unique gem for yourself.
History brought to life
Cardiff coach travel is an open door to the ancient kingdom of Wales, and the city claims to have the largest concentration of castles of any city in the world - the result of several centuries of invasion and occupation. Those interested in Roman, Norman and Medieval history will find plenty to keep them occupied and most attractions cater especially well for families - useful if you have children to entertain.
The city came into its own during the Industrial Revolution, and at one point was the world's largest coal exporting port. Nowadays Cardiff Bay is home to a host of chic bars and nightclubs, alongside modern attractions, such as the Welsh Assembly building and the brand new Wales Millennium Centre, a world-class arts venue.
A sporting chance
Cardiff was designated European City of Sport for 2009, and coach travel to Cardiff gives you the chance to experience Welsh rugby in its home town and to admire the Millennium Stadium, built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Cricket, football and ice hockey are also popular sports in the capital, and countless fans take the coach to Cardiff every year to cheer on their teams in the city's stadia.
Coach travel to Cardiff is also a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, with a well-run bike hire scheme in the city centre, numerous golf courses and the chance to try sailing, rowing, kayaking and even white water rafting at the Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre.
Cardiff is a major centre for arts and entertainment and benefits from the rich cultural heritage of Wales, as well as giving you the chance to enjoy art, music and theatre from around the world. The National Museum and Art Gallery boasts the finest collection of Impressionist art outside Paris. Cardiff's New Theatre offers a year round programme of drama, musicals, dance, children's shows - and take a coach to Cardiff in winter for the best pantomime in all of Wales!
And no visit to Cardiff would be complete without a little retail therapy. Cardiff coach travel is the best way to take advantage of the city's mind-boggling variety of shops, from high-street names to independent boutiques, in charming Edwardian arcades and ultra-modern malls.
