NileGuide Expert tip:
There are many footpaths in the woods surrounding Castel Coch. Pack sensible shoes and make the most of your visit to the castle by heading off into the Welsh woodland.
For an alternative way of travelling around Cardiff, head towards the water. Two companies provide waterbus services in Cardiff, and these not only get you from A to B, but also show you a side to Cardiff that can't be gained on land. Aquabus Water Transport Solutions Ltd provides a service that picks up at Cardiff Castle and then travels down the River Taff towards Cardiff Bay. Cardiff CATS take over operations in Cardiff Bay, the most popular service with tourists. Up to a 100 people can be seated on the boats, which cross from Mermaid Quay and its entertainment facilities, over to Penarth and Cardiff Barrage. Passengers can choose disembark when they reach either Mermaid Quay or Cardiff Barrage, or can stay onboard to enjoy their return journey.
