A vibrant country that can be reached in less than two hours from London, yet whose rich culture and heritage feels a world away, welcome to South Wales! Capital city Cardiff is home to a vibrant cultural scene and capital city status shopping, in flagship stores and also the many boutiques and independent shops that throng its famous ornate Victorian and Edwardian shopping arcades.

A South Wales venue which offers a gateway to off-planet adventure, Breakout Live Swansea, conveniently situated in the heart of the city, is Wales’ premier escape room, with three exciting, unique, and very different games to choose from. Locked in a room with 2-6 friends, family or colleagues, search high and low for clues and work together to solve a series of puzzles and mysteries to escape.

Boasting some of the finest scenery in Wales, Margam Park’s 1000 acres of varied parkland is home to Dracula-tastic Margam Castle, the largest deer herd in Wales, and some very special Go Ape exclusives. It’s Go Ape’s very first (and only) Welsh Tree Top Adventure, it boasts the only sea views across all Go Ape sites, and the UK’s biggest Tarzan Swing- a heart-in-your-mouth freefall of six massive metres!

Even if we’re counting the pennies a bit more, as we at Let’s Go Out celebrate, there are plenty of fantastic, great-value visitor experiences and grand days out close to wherever you look in the UK. And where better than seeing those actual pennies and pounds being minted in the heart of Wales! The Royal Mint Experience at Llantrisant is the only place in the world where you can watch the UK’s coins being made.

Wales’ capital city is crammed with heritage, culture, views, vibrant places to eat, drink and make merry, plus wonderful parks to stroll and relax in. If you don’t know where to start, there’s no need to pull on your running shoes. The team at City Sightseeing Cardiff have it all plotted out, so you can sit back and relax on their hop-on hop-off open-top double decker.
