In the City

There are so many wonderful places to explore in Cardiff. We recommend checking the opening hours and guidelines before you attend as hours and openings may be subject to change as a result of Government restrictions.


DIY Day Trips

We have created for you the perfect way to explore your local area and must-see sights around Cardiff with your household. All trips are fun, accessible by foot, bike or on easily available public transport from the Students’ Union building and ideal for those on a budget. We’ve tried to include as much information as we can, including any specific guidance surrounding Covid-19 affected operations. Make sure to plan ahead where necessary to ensure you make the most of each trip.
