A mix of many things, to know this city you´ll just have to visit!
You can find the Cardiff Castle by heading up through the city centre,
away from the train station. When you enter the fortress you may
well think the interior looks like an eccentric gothic decorator threw
up everywhere – but give it a chance! Later in the day try out the
Creepy Cardiff Ghost Tour. This little beauty is narrated by a walking
font of knowledge called David.
The historical high jinx stored in his brain is unsurpassable and top
tales include students impaled on dragon wings, newspaper fetching
dogs imprisoned in public toilets for all eternity and the scary tales!
Another must do in Cardiff is The National Museum and Gallery. Like
many of the great museums across Britain - it’s free and inside you’ll
find the second largest collection of Impressionist art - after Paris.
The great pieces on show include The Kiss by Rodin and Dressed
Dancer by Degas.
Cardiff is also the ideal base for hiking in the Brecon Beacons or
exploring the beautifully rugged Welsh coastline.

The number of sheep in Wales is four times that of humans.
Maybe that’s why all the statues that surround Cardiff
Castel are of animals!
