Cardiff, Wales, Uk Cruise Port
A cruise to Cardiff (or Caerdydd in Welsh), Wales in the United Kingdom offers old-world style punctuated by thoroughly modern experiences. You don't have to be a Doctor Who fan to appreciate Cardiff's role in popular culture, but Whovians may experience a not-so-secret thrill in exploring Wales’ capital city. A popular tourist destination, plenty of activities, and a thriving cultural scene keep the 18.3 million annual visitors entertained and well-fed. Cardiff is very old, as archaeological evidence shows signs of life here at least 6,000 years back, but it wasn't until October 1905 that King Edward VII granted Cardiff city status. One of the most breathtaking sights when standing in the city is the Wales Millennium Centre, with its lines of poetry written by Gwyneth Lewis and inscribed in both Welsh and English. Here are some of our favorite experiences while visiting the cruise port of Cardiff, Wales, UK:
- Shoppers can find the Cardiff Indoor Market is in the middle of the vibrant city center. Not only can you find a cheap breakfast, you can find fresh produce, local meats and pastries, used books and records – and even get your palm read.
- The National Museum Cardiff also features an art gallery; it's not only free to visit, but it features a treasure trove of paintings by various artists in the gallery part as well as a hands-on section in the museum.
- It probably shouldn't surprise you that Cardiff has a castle right in the middle of the city. One of Wales’ most popular attractions, the Cardiff Castle is located within a beautiful park, while the castle itself has 2,000 years of history built within its walls.
- In the mood for a bit of a scare? There are plenty of ghost walks available to check out, including ghost tours of Llandaff and St. Fagans Castle. The tours are run by local history enthusiasts, who can even offer you advice on what to do if you think you own home is haunted.
