hotels in Cardiff
Even though Cardiff was only
made a city in 1905 and subsequently a capital in 1955, it has become one
of the fastest growing and popular cities in the UK. Redevelopment over
the past twenty years has turned Cardiff into a hot tourist spot, as well
as attracting more and more students each year.
|Cardiff began to be industrious
in the 1900's (after becoming a major port in the transferral of coal)
and has never looked back in terms of broadening itself as a city. Since
then, Cardiff has added a Roman Catholic Cathedral and is host to the National
Museum of Wales and the newly built Millennium Stadium. However, Cardiff
isn't just a city filled with modern buildings and new design. Cardiff
Castle has been stuck in its cement for nearly 2000 years. This mix of
old and new gives Cardiff a juxtaposition which is fascinating. The castle
has seen literally thousands of years of history, which is absorbed into
the surroundings; an inspirational visit at a reasonable price.
A newer feature which Cardiff
is proud to offer is the Millennium Stadium. Having opened in 1999, the
stadium has brought some of the greatest sports and pop stars to the city,
making Cardiff even more popular as a tourist destination. The stadium
is the largest in the world, seating 74,500 people and is one of the only
stadiums in the world with a fully retractable roof. For a relatively small
fee you can take a tour of the stadium which includes visiting the dressing
rooms, the actual ground, and even sitting in the Queen's seat.
For those who are fans of
food and drink, Cardiff is the place for you. With the student population
growing and growing, so are the numbers of bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants.
Wherever you go in Cardiff
you will never be more than five minutes from a bar or eatery, and the
choice is extensive. This city is perfect for either a quiet night out,
or one where you can really let your hair down.
With Cardiff's growth in
tourism, there have never been more (or better) hotels in Cardiff. Cardiff
hotels tend to be good
value for money, so make sure you shop around to get the best price.
