    The museum is very wonderful. And it wasn't just entertainment, they actually took historic buildings from all over the countryside apart brick by brick and reassembled them on site. It is well laid out with a lovely garden to walk through and active exhibits although some were not due to the time of year. Very educational and fun. Highly recommend with or without children. It also has a children's play area, which we didn't have. Very enjoyable would like to spend half a day or more. We will be back soon

    Well worth a visit. It’s free to walk through the castle, but costs to enter the buildings and walk the walls. Plenty of different areas to see when paying, including the old WWII air raid shelter, the house, the Keep, and a Roman wall.

    Fantastic Tour. Well worth the money.

    Went on a tour of the grounds here and it was fabulous. The experience is great and we really recommend it and well worth a look - even if you aren't very sporty. It's just so amazing and interesting to see behind the scenes. Our guide was great and made the tour so even more enjoyable. Loved it! We will be back to see a game when we can get tickets!!!

    Beautiful building, evolution of Wales and natural history sections interesting but in need of updating with more scope for interactive exhibits. Cafe and Oriel restaurant both disappointing - no food in the Oriel restaurant just before 12 and no menu in the foyer restaurant with an odd display of sandwiches with no descriptions. There could also be better signposting as to what’s on near the main entrance.

    I visit the Wales Millennium Centre countless times throughout the year for performances such as musicals and plays. The range of entertainment they have here is second to none and the productions are always marvellous. As a regular theatre goer, I enjoy going to see live theatre and I do so alone, with friends and with family. Every time I have visited, the staff have been friendly, accommodating and it has been a memorable experience. I am so looking forward to my next few visits there this year and am excited to see what they manage to book in for 2025!

    Large park right next to the main city attractions.

    One can simply take a short stroll, while we decided to make it a 10km run out and back. It was a great way to get out and see the natural beauty, just outside our hotel.

    A definite must do if visiting Cardiff.

    Went in not knowing what to expect. Parking was smooth and plentiful opposite the building. They try to push the Q car park on the website with a 15% discount, I understand this is a lot further and probably pricier than parking outside.

    There are 2 floors with lots of activities. We went during Half Term with a 5 and 2 year old expecting it to be heaving. There were plenty of kids about, but there is so much space that we were never waiting for too long.

    Personal highlights: rocket launcher, hurricane simulator and the big screen with dinosaurs walking among us!

    This was truly a great day out, we didn't get a chance to do the planetarium as it was all booked out, so will take the kids when they are a bit older.

    This was an easy bus ride from Cardiff city center to Black Lion, then a quick walk to the cathedral. Stunning architecture inside and out. If you’re lucky the organist will be practicing and you can sit and enjoy the beautiful acoustics they have. It just felt very peaceful inside and I sat for a while and just took it all in. lovely little town as well.
