What makes this tour special

Discover the rich character of Cardiff, a riverside capital city layered with six millennia of history that boasts a strong Welsh identity and buzzing cultural mix.

On this fascinating private walking tour of Cardiff, stroll an exciting city, rich in historic sights and cultural attractions and a major centre of the arts. Dynamic, young and buzzing -  yet with deep roots in the past - Cardiff is one of Europe’s fastest-growing cities and the sacred home of Welsh rugby. Your first stop is Cardiff University, founded in 1883, and boasting a noteworthy Alumni in the fields of international sports, politics and journalism with students of 130 different nationalities enrolled each year. City Hall is next, a much-cherished piece of stunning early 20th century architecture, built in pale Portland stone, in Edwardian Baroque style, it is a high-ranking Insta hit. 

Cardiff National Museum offers everything from art to dinosaurs - your guide will instruct you on the best ways to explore the museum after your tour and encourage a return for a deeper dig. Next, Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral, built in fine Gothic Revival style, before a wander to admire Cardiff Castle’s fairytale towers. On to Cardiff Principality Stadium, a venue at the heart of Welsh cultural life, from cheering rugby fans on match days to Beyonce gigs, male voice choirs and opera. Lastly, visit the old-style Cardiff Central Market, for Victorian-era indoor shopping in the city’s atmospheric Castle Quarter.

Opening in 1999, the stadium is the home field for Welsh rugby, and also serves as a concert and event venue.

The Edwardian style Grade I building was erected in 1904, though four other city halls preceded it.

It is part of Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd - the National Museum Wales - and serves as an art gallery, a museum of botany, geology and zoology.

A Roman Catholic church built in the Gothic Revival style, the church roof was bombed in World War II, restored after the war, and still serves as the center of the Catholic Church in Wales.
