Weather in Cardiff
Cardiff does receive less rainfall than other areas of Wales, but don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security; it does rain quite frequently in the Welsh capital, and you would be well advised to keep a good supply of waterproof clothing and umbrellas stashed in your Cardiff vacation home just in case. Spring and summer usually bring pleasant temperatures and sunny weather, but even the sunny days can be interrupted by the occasional rain shower.
Great things to do in Cardiff
History, culture, and an abundance of laid back areas make your Cardiff vacation home a great base from which to do some sightseeing and enjoy the best a city break has to offer.
The city’s most famous attraction is Cardiff Castle, which has a history that dates back to the 3rd century A.D. The castle that stands today was built in the 11th century and has been involved in some of the most important moments in British history, including the English Civil War of 1642. It’s a joy to explore, with many fascinating nooks and crannies throughout the structure. The highlight is the banquet hall, which is quite simply stunning.
A visit to St Fagans National History Museum is highly recommended. This open air museum is located just outside of Cardiff city center and features a walk through historical Wales. It’s a large space, with many traditional buildings and a wealth of information about the houses in the grounds of St Fagans Castle.
No stay in your Cardiff vacation rental is complete without a trip to Bute Park, a large oasis in the city. This large area includes gardens and wide open spaces, which are great for summer picnics or just playing some games with the family. Dotted around the park are points of interest, including a Woodland Play Trail for youngsters and a QR trail, where you can guide yourself around the park with your smartphone. There’s also plenty of wildlife in the park, including woodpeckers, kingfishers, and tree creepers.
When you want a break from sightseeing, head to Cardiff Bay, which is home to more than hundreds of hectacres of redeveloped buildings. You’ll find offices, cafés, and restaurants, and it's a great place to while away a few hours on a warm summer afternoon.
