The city of Cardiff offers visitors a wide range of activities and sites to visit.

The Museum of Welsh Life is another worthwhile stopping point as is St. Davids Cathedral.
Those with a keen interest in sports will be spoiled for choice during their visit to the Welsh capital. The crowning jewel of Cardiffs sporting heritage is the Millennium Stadium, home to the national football and rugby union teams. The 74,500 capacity stadium also houses a host of other events, including music concerts, motor sports (the British Grand Prix of Speedway is an annual event), and boxing. Whilst the new Wembley Stadium was being constructed, the Millennium Stadium was home to the FA Cup Final. Elsewhere the city offers athletics, ice hockey, football and golf courses aplenty.
Cardiff International Arena hosts a large number of pop and rock concerts as well as a number of other exhibition events. Elsewhere in the city visitors will find a number of smaller venues where lesser known bands and acts perform. The city also houses several theatres.
One of the most popular attractions in the city is Cardiff Bay. With an assortment of intriguing buildings and a number of water activities to undertake, the reclaimed freshwater bay is a must visit for those staying at the Copthorne Hotel Cardiff.
