Cardiff was home to the famous Roald Dahl, who sold more than 250 million books worldwide. His childhood home is marked by a blue plaque on the garden wall, and the local arts centre has been renamed the Roald Dahl Plass. With plenty of Welsh connections and inspiration, Dahl makes Cardiff stand out.

Today, Cardiff is renowned for its stellar sporting atmosphere. The rugby international match days are a must. If you can’t catch a match, you’re still going to love exploring one of the major sporting venues – Principality Stadium, Liberty Stadium and Cardiff City Stadium. Each site offers visitors the chance to go behind the scenes and visit the changing rooms, go pitch-side and learn more about the history of the stadium.
