The capital of Wales, Cardiff is a very green city indeed, boasting more green space per person than any other place in the country.
Family-friendly places like Woolacombe Beach and Rhossili Bay will thrill your kids. Let the collections at The Roman Baths and St. Fagans: National History Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Brunel's SS Great Britain (in Bristol), Barricane Beach (in Mortehoe) and Pulteney Bridge (in Bath). There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Cardiff Castle, take in the exciting artwork at National Museum Cardiff, take in the waterfront at Cardiff Bay Wales, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Mark's Church.
