Here you’ll find the Wales Millennium Centre – home to musicals, opera, ballet, concerts and performances from artists across the world.


Carved from a former coal tip, Penalta has a variety of woodlands and grassland to stroll through including a marsh and two fishing lakes. The park is dotted with sculptures, including ‘Sultan’ the pit pony, one of the UK’s largest figurative earth sculptures.

On days when you feel more adventurous how about paragliding, rafting or abseiling? You can also take your activities underground with caving.


This National Trust property on the outskirts of Cardiff covers more than 55 acres. The Edwardian Gardens are currently undergoing a revival project and you can discover intimate garden rooms, an enormous great lawn, large glasshouse and arboretum.
