Historic castles and impressive nature

Want to visit the capital of Wales? Book a flight to Cardiff and admire amazing historic buildings such as St John’s Church, Llandaff Cathedral and Coch Castle.

Travel back in time

The city’s best-known attraction is the medieval Cardiff Castle, where you can hunt for hidden treasures with the kids or relax in the tranquil gardens. Want to learn how people used to live in the 17th-century? Check out the National History Museum in St Fagans. Cardiff also offers ample opportunities for shopping, eating, and entertainment. Stroll along Queen Street and browse the many shops, or listen to local street musicians play. You’ll find most fresh, local products, such as traditional Welsh fruitcake, at Cardiff Market. Cardiff is not only the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in the United Kingdom. Treat yourself: book a flight to Cardiff now!

Imposing mountains and thundering waterfalls

The nature in Wales is simply breathtaking. Head to the Brecon Beacons National Park with its impressive mountains, waterfalls and heathlands. Snowdonia National Park is a few hours north and has endless options for hiking trails. For the more adventurous, there’s Mount Snowdon. It’s the highest mountain in Wales at 1085 metres high. Recover in the evening with a nice bowl of ‘cawl’, a local, hearty stew made with meat, cheese and vegetables.
