Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is a city of contrasts. Cardiff Castle sits alongside Cardiff’s pedestrianised shopping streets and malls which contain popular high street and designer stores. The Victorian and Edwardian arcades that criss-cross the city centre are home to dozens of independent shops and boutiques where you can find unique gifts, clothes and food, many with a Welsh flavour. A few minutes from the castle and city centre are the revitalised docklands of Cardiff Bay with its many restaurants and cafes. Dominating the skyline in the Bay is the Wales Millennium Centre, home to a number of arts organisations including the world-renowned Welsh National Opera.¬†Cardiff is easily reached by road or by rail from Cheltenham in less than two hours.
