Today’s tour features the youngest capital city of Europe, Cardiff. We start with a drive around the city taking in The National Museum, City Hall, Cardiff Castle and the Principality Stadium, continuing our journey to Cardiff Bay where we visit the home of Welsh Government known as Y Senedd and the Wales Millennium Centre.
We travel then from present to past and visit St Fagans National History Museum, one of Europe’s leading open-air museums and Wales’ most popular heritage attraction. Here you can step back in time to experience demonstrations, crafts and activities at a living museum that really brings the past to life. You could perhaps enjoy a Welsh cake in one of the many refreshment outlets or browse the exciting range of products in the shops.
We leave St Fagans and travel to Penarth, a coastal town 5 miles south west of Cardiff. Penarth was a popular holiday destination during Victorian times and is known as the ‘Garden by the Sea’. There are many points of interest here; you can walk along the imposing Victorian Pier and take in the views across the Severn Estuary, where the rise and fall of the tides are the second highest recorded anywhere in the world. Situated in the heart of the town is ‘The Paget Rooms’ which was the venue for one of the last concerts by Welsh superstar Sir Tom Jones before his move to America. Just along the coast is Lavernock Point where in 1897 the first wireless signals in the world were transmitted and received over open sea.
Leaving the Vale of Glamorgan we travel back to the place where the day began.
