The capital of Wales, Cardiff is a very green city indeed, boasting more green space per person than any other place in the country.
Get in touch with nature at Woolacombe Beach and Barricane Beach. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Roman Baths and Rhossili Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Cardiff side-trips: Brunel's SS Great Britain (in Bristol), Pulteney Bridge (in Bath) and Saint Marks's Brithdir (in Brithdir). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at St Fagans National Museum of History, take in the exciting artwork at National Museum Cardiff, take a leisurely stroll along Cardiff Bay Wales, and step into the grandiose world of Cardiff Castle.
