Cardiff walking tours
Cardiff Walking Tour
Cardiff is one of the fastest growing capital cities in Europe; a young, vibrant, modern city with a strong Welsh identity.
Cardiff has undergone numerous transformations across two millennia, from the Romans to Normans, through medieval times to Cardiff's glory age as a major coal trading centre of Victorian Britain. The architectural legacy of industrial Cardiff even lives on today.
On this 2 & a quarter hour historical and cultural walking tour of Cardiff city centre, discover landmarks, buildings, statues and characters from these 2,000 years of Cardiff's rich history, including....
Owain Glyn Dwr
The Bute Family
St. John's Church
Cardiff's iconic Arcades
and much more.....
