Cardiff may be a young capital city, but it is a city steeped in history and culture. From the Romans to the Normans, from Tudor times to the Industrial Revolution and beyond, the Welsh capital has lived an eventful and full life. On this two-hour walking tour of central Cardiff we will discuss this journey of Cardiff from Roman outpost to the capital of Wales, which saw the city grow rapidly in size, population and wealth across the nineteenth century. This tour takes in all of the major landmarks of the city centre, including Cardiff Castle, Bute Park, Cardiff Market, the Principality Stadium, and the spectacular Civic Centre. Discover not only the architecture and history of Cardiff, but the culture and characters of Wales too, from rugby, food and language, to the iconic figures who made this little country what it is today.
