Just a hop, skip and jump away from the main Cardiff University campus, there are no excuses not to visit the National Museum & Gallery and Cardiff Castle. Explore Wales’ historical past with a massive collection of national artifacts and leading art from around the world at the museum and gallery.
Cardiff Castle’s gothic structure looks like something from a medieval fairytale. Take time to tour the castle apartments before climbing up all the steps to look out over the city. There’s even a reduced rate for students so everyone wins.
Or move from history to pop culture and grab a bunch of friends to spend your weekend travelling through space and time at the Doctor Who Experience on Cardiff Bay. It’s a 40-minute walk from the centre but there are strong train and bus routes to get you there quicker.
