Things To Do
Visit St Fagans National History Museum, one of the top tourist destinations in Cardiff and a great day out for all ages during caravan holidays in South Wales.
Enjoy the city’s castles. You get 2000 years of history when you visit Cardiff Castle, which surely makes it great value for money, or if you’re in a romantic mood perhaps you’d like to visit Castell Coch, just north of Cardiff city.
People from all over the world visit The National Museum Cardiff, making it a must-see attraction during caravan holidays in Cardiff.
Don’t miss Cardiff Bay during your caravan holidays in South Wales. Visit Wales Millennium Centre, an architectural masterpiece, the slate and steel building now an iconic landmark famous the world over. If you have children, go to the Doctor Who Experience and the Red Dragon Centre, as well as many shops, bars and restaurants in Cardiff Bay.
The National Assembly for Wales meets at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay, an award winning, innovative, Lord Richard Rogers designed building made of glass, steel, slate and concrete with a striking roof that’s lined with red cedar. But it’s not just a place for politics, visit the home of the Welsh Assembly for events and a café, or take one of the free, pre-booked guided tours.
Cardiff sits adjacent to the M4, thus many people coming to the city will use this to get there on their caravan holidays. If you’re travelling from the Midlands, take the M5 to Bristol where you can join the M4 and head west into Wales crossing one of the Severn Bridges – tolls apply when entering Wales only.
To avoid the tolls when approaching from the north, you can leave the M5 at junction eight and join the M50 which will take you to Ross-on-Wye where you can join the A40. Near Raglan you’ll need to join the A449 then follow this south until it meets the M4.
From Brecon, take the A470 south to Cardiff, the A4042 the main route from Abergavenny to Cardiff.
