"Cardiff Airport is a small international airport"

Cardiff Airport is a small international airport that largely serves the city of Cardiff, as well as much of the rest of Wales. The airport is located in the city of Rhoose, which is about a twenty-minute drive from the Cardiff central business district. The airport was first established in the early 1940s for military purposes. Throughout World War II, the airport was largely used to help train pilots. Following the war, the military continued to use the airport as a training facility. However, by the mid 1950s, the airport was converted to primarily service passenger and cargo planes. Since then, the airport has continued to expand to become one of the most heavily used airports in Wales. More from this guide...

Cardiff Market has been operating since the 18th century in some manner or another, and has been in the same place for well over 100 years, which explains why you'll notice posts outside offered for you to tie your livestock to — a practice long since banished.

Offerings Dorothy Perkins, HMV, JD Sports, Next, Primark, Top Shop, River Island, Laura Ashley, Marks & Spencer, WHSmith and Office, amongst many other world-famous brands. Queen Street is considered the city's main shopping street, so you'll find varied musicians and street artists performing quite often.

The Hayes

Featuring designer stores & boutiques, the Hayes is lined with buildings of Edwardian and Victorian styles on one side — and St David's on the other. Savvy shoppers will recognize names such as Hugo Boss, Radley, Kurt Geiger and Molton Brown. One of the interesting features of the Hayes is the transformation from old to new.
