The capital of Wales, Cardiff is a very green city indeed, boasting more green space per person than any other place in the country.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Wed): contemplate the long history of Big Pit National Coal Museum, then explore the historical opulence of Caerphilly Castle, then see the interesting displays at St Fagans National Museum of History, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Newport Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 16th (Thu): step into the grandiose world of Cardiff Castle, take a leisurely stroll along Cardiff Bay Wales, and then learn more about the world around you at National Museum Cardiff.

To see ratings, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Cardiff road trip planner.

Denver, USA to Cardiff is an approximately 14.5- hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car, flight, and train; or fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Denver to Cardiff. When traveling from Denver in March, plan for a bit cooler days and a bit warmer nights in Cardiff: temperatures range from 49°F by day to 38°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) early enough to drive to St. Davids.
