When to book cheap flights to Cardiff

What to see in Cardiff?
From the massive redevelopment in Cardiff Bay with Techniquest science museum, to the Doctor Who Experience which showcases costumes and aliens from the series and the bars and restaurants of Mermaid Quay, there’s a little something for everyone in Cardiff.
In terms of historic sights, Cardiff Castle is an absolute must see. Built on top of an ancient Roman Fort, the medieval castle is definitely one for Instagram!
Cardiff has a compact city centre with large parts of the city centre pedestrianised, so getting around by foot is easy. This is also true for the waterfront area of Cardiff Bay - you can easily walk around in 15 minutes. Being a relatively flat city, Cardiff is great for cycling and has many bike racks dotted around the city centre. Cardiff also has an extensive bus network with most buses going through the city centre and express buses connecting to the airport.
