Car hire in Cardiff

Cardiff is Wales’ capital city., and major business centre.  It is also the home for most national sporting and cultural institutions, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales.   

The city of Cardiff and its surrounding area offer a wide selection of attractions and having your own hire car makes getting between them easy. 

In the city, first stop should be the Principality Stadium (formerly the Millennium Stadium), which hosts a wide variety of sporting events and musical performances. There is also the Millennium Centre, an arts performances centre offering opera, ballet and  theatre.

If you’re interested in history Cardiff Castle is fascinating.  Originally a Roman fort, it has evolved over 2000 years to include a Norman keep and the much later Victorian mansion.  Today the castle hosts several events throughout the year including musical performances and sporting occasions.

Learn more about Cardiff and Welsh history in the city’s many museums, National Museum, St Fagans National Museum of History and Techniquest, a hands-on science discovery centre.  Mining was the major industry in Wales for many years, for those who’d like to know more about the industry and its impact of the South Wales Valley.
