Cardiff is a capital city that is compact, cosmopolitan - and great value for money. Over the past decade Cardiff has been completely rejuvenated, building on its history to become the dynamic capital of Wales you see today. Delegates will be charmed by the combination of old and new that unite to create an exciting modern city.
Most of the city centre hotels, venues and attractions are only a five to ten minute drive from the All Nations Centre. This chic capital has a thriving nightlife and an abundance of stylish retail and dining establishments throughout the historic city centre and stunning waterfront. We’ll be happy to make some recommendations, or point you in the right direction for your favourite shops in one of the UK’s largest shopping centres.
Cardiff Bay, just a mile from the city centre, is now popular part of any visit to Cardiff. Visitors can enjoy a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops in Mermaid Quay, cruise or sail on Cardiff Bay, or explore attraction such as the impressive Wales Millennium Centre, Norwegian Church or Red Dragon Centre.
Regular free festivals and events, such as the Christmas market and the International Food and Drink Festival, take place throughout the year.
For peace and tranquility, Cardiff also has more urban green spaces than any other UK city. Why not visit Bute Park and take a stroll through the arboretum or ornamental gardens. The park was once part of the castle grounds, but was donated to the people of Cardiff by the Marquess of Bute. The River Taff also flows through the park, so keep an eye out for wildlife including herons, mallards, trout and salmon along the Taff trail.
Whilst here, why not also pick up a few Welsh words. Known as 'the language of heaven', Welsh is one of the oldest spoken languages in Europe, and is the most popular of the Celtic languages spoken today.
Cardiff frequently appears in top ten lists as a great place to live and visit. We love being a part of this vibrant city and trust your stay is enjoyable.
