    Cardiff – the home of the dragon

    Hear daffodil-headed rugby fans roar like a dragon in the Principality Stadium as Welsh ales slosh in the pubs down lively Womanby Street. You can seek out everything from haunted Norman castles to cutting-edge shopping malls in the buzzing capital of Cardiff. At once modern and old, threaded with cobbled streets and dotted with slate chapels, peppered with futuristic arts centres and vibrant student quarters, this is one seriously awesome city to explore. You can seek out Cardiff holiday rentals with swish lounges and on-site parking to make your stay in Wales a comfortable one this year.

    Festivities in Cardiff

    Cardiff is an epicentre of Welsh culture and arts. Festivals and events dot the capital's calendar from December to December. The 6 Nations Championship kicks things off for rugby fans in February, when head-to-head showdowns in the Principality Stadium breath fire into Welsh voices and local pubs – especially when the English are in town. March brings St David's Day and all the leek-touting, cockle-picking costume parades that go with it. Summer, meanwhile, has the Welsh Proms, attracting world-class orchestras to the metropolis.

    Getting to grips with Wales in Cardiff

    If you've bagged yourself one of the coveted Cardiff holiday rentals in the city centre, you'll only be a stone's throw from the majestic rises of Cardiff Castle. Riddled with Norman keeps and Gothic court rooms, it's a grand picture of the city's rise to power. If you've gone for Cardiff holiday rentals in the surrounding Welsh countryside, a trip to St Fagans National Museum of History is a must. Local heritage unravels there between the Victorian schoolhouses and old miners' homes – and admission is totally free.

    Come anytime to Cardiff

    The months don't matter in Cardiff – there's always something going on. Winter, in December, January and February, means catching the patriotic parties of the 6 Nations Championship and the Christmas markets alike. Spring – March, April, May – is high time to hit Bute Park and enjoy big sights like Cardiff Castle without the crowds. Summer, from June to August, sees the pubs come to life and al fresco enjoyments down on Cardiff Bay. Autumn is great for exploring the pretty Welsh countryside and the Brecon Beacons mountains.

    Clutching the sea in Cardiff

    Cardiff might straddle the Taff River, but it soon spills into the Bristol Channel. You can catch glimpses of the fabled Welsh coast as close as Penarth, while nearby Barry Island has wide bays of gold-hued sand to laze on. Going in the other direction means passing through the valleys until you get to the Brecon Beacons National Park. There, the shark-fin mountain of Pen y Fan marks the highest point in South Wales, challenging trails weave over the Cribyn ridges and mountain ponies gallop on the grasslands. There are also loads of uber-cosy Cardiff holiday rentals to pick from.
