Airfield in Wales
An airfield was first built on the site in the early 1940s and was used as an RAF Spitfire base. After the war, it fell into disuse until re-opening for civil aircraft in 1952 with an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin. It has grown to its present capacity over the years and is now the only airport in Wales offering international scheduled flights, the majority of which are to Spain, Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as seasonal flights to other holiday destinations.
The airport is situated only twelve miles from central Cardiff and has quick links to the M4, which runs directly into London. If you prefer to travel by train, the terminal station connects directly to the city’s Central Railway Station with its links to London Paddington.
National Coach Services offers very reasonably priced direct or connecting routes to most major towns in the United Kingdom.
Wales is a popular holiday spot and ideal for that last minute break, especially if the weather is being kind. In the city you will discover a historic town with lots to see and do, which is surrounded by beautiful countryside and stunning coastlines.
Cardiff was the 19th century creation of John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute, who at the time was the world’s richest man. His presence is still strongly felt in the town, especially in the colorful castle and the elegant Civic Center.
The docks that created his fortune have been revamped and are a good place to while away some time, whether drinking, eating, shopping or just relaxing. Whilst here a visit should be paid to the Wales Millennium Center.
This magnificent building of Welsh slate, houses several art galleries and the opera theater. The roof is pierced by 2 meter high letter shaped windows which, when lit at night, spell out phrases from a local poem. A guided tour will take you behind these letters, onto the opera stage and into the dressing rooms.
