3. Cardiff, Wales
Many UK visitors flock to England, Scotland and Ireland, but Wales seems to be a lesser consideration. The mountains of Snowdonia and castles in the north are popular points of interest, but the capital city of Cardiff is definitely worthy of a visit too. No longer the industrial coal town or yore, cosmopolitan Cardiff is now a dynamic city with world class sports and performing arts complexes to keep you thoroughly entertained. There’s always some action at Millennium Stadium, with the most enthusiastic local fans around. Try indoor surfing or a thrilling white water course at the Cardiff International White Water Center. Dr. Who fans won’t want to miss the Dr. Who Experience. Want to experience some traditional Welsh culture? Check out Saint Fagans National History Museum.
