When to visit

When planning your family holiday to Cardiff, consider the following to make the most of your visit:

  • Summer (June to August) allows you to bask in warm weather, attend outdoor events and spend longer days exploring, but it's also the busiest and most expensive season.
  • Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) offer pleasant temperatures, fewer tourists, lower rates and are perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activities.
  • Winter (December to February) may be cold and rainy, but it offers festive events, Christmas markets, and indoor attractions to keep the family entertained.
  • School holidays and weekends entail peak periods, requiring advanced booking for accommodation and activities, particularly during summer.
Don't forget always to plan your family holiday around your children's school holidays to avoid any fines or complications.
