Cardiff is easily accessible by car (M6, M5, M4) and is only one and a half hours from Heathrow International Airport. By train, it is two hours from London . Cardiff’s international airport receives flights from other European cities. A taxi and bus service provide transport to the city. Cardiff’s Park & Ride service is a cheap and convenient way to move around in the city.
Cardiff offers many culinary options, from its markets to its quality restaurants. The centuries- old Cardiff Central Market and the Riverside Farmers market offer fresh local produce and fair-trade goods (Cardiff is a Fairtrade City). The city centre and café quarter offer many dining options, including The Social, which was awarded 2 AA rosettes and Las Iguanas, a South American restaurant.
Cardiff hosts a number of festivals and events throughout the year, the largest of which is the Cardiff Festival. The summer-long festival features artistic, sporting and cultural events. Notable events include the Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival, the Cardiff Harbour Festival, and the Grande Medieval Mêlée.
Due to its rough conditions, the stretch of coast on which Cardiff lies was formerly a ship graveyard, as many vessels bound for the city were wrecked before arriving.
