There are so many reasons to love Cardiff. Whether it’s our rich history, beautiful architecture, incredible food scene or miles of golden coastline to the west, there is something for everyone here.
You’ll stay in city centre accommodation, visit two cultural attractions within the UK and be invited to entertaining social events in our vibrant Welsh Capital. This is your opportunity to experience British culture with new friends from across the globe!
