There are many beautiful green spaces in central Cardiff - including the Cardiff Castle Grounds and Bute Park - and just a short 5 minute walk from the Glamorgan building lies City Hall and the National Museum of Wales, which inter alia hosts a fine collection of Impressionist paintings (but is closed Mondays). Within walking/bus distance of the City Centre is the old port area of Cardiff, now modernised and rebranded as Cardiff Bay. In addition to bar, hotel, and restaurant areas, it hosts iconic buildings such as the Cardiff Millennium Centre (home of opera, dance and theatre - formal tours backstage are available from http://www.wmc.org.uk), the Welsh Assembly Government and the Cardiff University Wales Governance Centre, which can all be seen in the photo below.
It is also close to a variety of tourist attractions, such as the Welsh National Folk Museum (at St. Fagans, just outside Cardiff), the Gower/Swansea Bay, and industrial museum experiences such as the Rhondda Heritage Park and The Big Pit in the Welsh Valleys. The Millennium Stadium in the City Centre plays host to major rugby and football internationals, and the city is a half hour drive away from the spectacular countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Wales has been selected as one of the ten top places to visit by Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide. Whilst we cannot organise excursions ourselves, there are many tourism firms in Cardiff who can organise day trips.
