HMS Cardiff

Cardiff – Your Cruise Ship Destination

Cardiff, the Welsh capital, a city renowned for its drunken nightlife and rugby matches, has long ago shed the image of its industrial past. The revival of Cardiff Bay has made it one of the most visited waterside locations. Today, Cardiff is a place where historical castles and glass buildings join together. This, and not only, might just make this grand European city your next cruise ship destination. But why take a cruise ship? Because nothing can give you the same feeling of openness as sailing along the coast. Hop aboard and let yourself be shrouded by the salty marine breeze.

A dock full of energy

Cardiff Bay was given a second life when the regeneration project started. The waterfront is now a mash of vibrant attractions and entertainment. From the restored pieces of history to the colorful bars and shops, there is something for every tourist who wants to spend some memorable time. Here you can find Wales Millennium Centre, one of UK’s most important cultural attractions, heart of the performing arts. For those who are more excited by sports, Cardiff Bay Activity Centre provides a range of activities such as rowing, canoeing and sailing in a clean environment. The views are not to be ignored either. The Barrage is the perfect place for a stroll through the skate plaza or the free exhibitions.

Other than the mainland, there are attractions to be experienced off the coast, too. Such is Flat Holm Island, a place of distinctive wilderness. This is where one can escape for a day or two and get a taste of freedom and peaceful isolation from the noisy city life. If you are a culture loving traveller but at the same time you are thirsty for adventure, do not miss the chance of a cruise to Cardiff – the most animated harbor in the UK.
