Cardiff Castle is over 2000 years old with it starting out as a Roman fort. It has been passed between the hands of various noble families and each have left their mark upon it, building it up to the impressive landmark it is today. Learn about Roman, Norman, Victorian and even Second World War history when you visit and marvel at the eclectic architecture. If history isn’t your vibe then you’re in luck: the castle grounds are also often used as a live music venue. See musicians like Olly Murs and Lionel Ritchie in this impressive event space. Even after 2000 years, the castle is still just as important to Cardiff city life.
The Wales Millennium Centre is a hub of performing arts and theatre. It houses performances of opera, ballet, West End musicals, hip hop, art exhibitions and stand-up comedy. There are even free daily performances in the foyer! The architecture of the building is equally fascinating as what happens inside of it. This building was designed to be the essence of everything Welsh: its multicoloured slate exterior was taken from various Welsh quarries and the glass features were created and stalled by the Architectural Glass Department at Swansea Institute of Higher Education. There is even more to discover and the centre provides guided tours so you can learn everything about it, inside and out.
