You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cardiff: Gower Peninsula (in Swansea), Baked Bean Museum of Excellence (in Port Talbot) and Rhossili Bay (in Rhossili). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at St Fagans National Museum of History, take a leisurely stroll along Cardiff Bay Wales, have some family-friendly fun at ImmotionVR, and explore the historical opulence of Cardiff Castle.
