Before you travel to Cardiff by coach - good to know!

While there are many large-scale attractions in the city, there is also a growing craft beer scene as well as a rich artistic heritage. Head down to Spillers Records in Morgan Arcade and soak in the atmosphere of the world’s oldest record store. A compact city, Cardiff is connected by bus services that tend to move anti-clockwise around the city. While hackney cabs can be hailed by the roadside, all other taxis must be pre-booked by phone or by going to a licensed taxi rank. If you are renting a car, you should be conscious of the many pedestrianised streets that are off-limits to drivers. Bikes are one of the most popular ways to get around, with rental locations available around the city.
