Previously the bustling centre of Welsh industry, millions of tonnes of fuel was transported across the globe from Cardiff. When the coal industry began to decline during the 20th century, Cardiff’s docklands fell into disrepair but, following extensive redevelopment, the area has been transformed into a go-to entertainment spot. Take a trip to Cardiff Bay and you’ll find eateries offering cuisine from around the world, buzzing bars filled with people and music, an entertainment complex and comedy club, museums and art galleries, as well as Cardiff’s International Sports Village filled with top notch sporting facilities.
Whether you want to discover the history of the area, take to the water on a raft for a different view of the city or sit back and enjoy the sunset with a drink, you’ll find plenty to do in Cardiff Bay. Don’t want to stay too far from the waterfront? We offer a range of hotels in Cardiff to make sure you get the most out of your visit to the city, including our Premier Inn Cardiff City South, less than 5 minutes’ drive from the Bay.
