Visiting the United Kingdom in the summer, tourists will find the country at its best. No matter what the reason is for visiting the UK i.e. business or pleasure then you will be pleased to know that the country of Wales has a lot to offer.
The capital of Wales is Cardiff and the emblem is a leek. There has been a lot of development around the city centre in recent years and the bay area now boasts a large welcoming complex which surrounds the marina. There is fun for all the family here.
In recent years a lot of money has been spend in renovating the water areas which run through Cardiff including the Bay of Mermaid. This is a lovely part of the city where you can order a coffee and catch up with your friends after a good days shopping. Head off to any one of the designer shops for a little retail therapy. When you are finished head up to the city centre by boat instead of by foot and enjoy the water side view for a change.
Thinking of your next adventure could take you over to the Planetarium which is also based in the quay area follow the sign posts for Techniquest where the entry is the same door as the science centre. Great for viewing Patrick Moore star at night style.
There are many places to visit once you arrive at the city. Parents arriving with children may wish to budget for the actives and possibly write up a plan for each day which will help with keeping the costs down low. Search around online or in local newspapers for advice or tips on how to save money on your family trip as there may be discounts available for when you go on holiday.
Last tip would be to book your rental car from Cardiff well in advance due to busy school holiday periods during summer, Easter and Christmas. Vehicles can be booked and collected from downtown or airport locations.
