Local attractions in South Wales

There is an ever-increasing choice of attractions to visit and the proximity to the coast and mountains means that Cardiff really does have something for everyone.

The area of Cardiff Bay has been transformed into a stunning waterfront with a wealth of attractions and leisure facilities including Techniquest, the UK's leading science discovery centre. The picturesque Norwegian Church, where Roald Dahl was christened and the futuristic 'Tube' Visitor Centre with its multi-screen media displays.

The city's arts facilities are exceptional, with the National Museum and Gallery housing a superb collection of Impressionist works by Renoir, Cézanne and Monet – all against the backdrop of the fine neo-classical Portland stone Civic Centre.

South Wales is dotted with castles; most notable the stunningly elaborate Cardiff Castle located in the centre of the city. On the northern edge of Cardiff, set in the wooded hillside, is the fairytale Castell Coch (Red Castle).
