Mini guide to Cardigan

     

Founded in 1093 by Roger de Montgomery, Cardigan is a Welsh town with an interesting mix of medieval and maritime history. Whether it's exploring historic and ancient sites you are interested in, fishing or paddling in the beautiful clear waters of Cardigan Bay, or simply strolling along scenic coastal paths; there's something for everyone in Cardigan.

Cardigan Castle is perhaps the most famous visitor attraction and is a monument with an intriguing and troubled history. Erected in 1100 by Gilbert de Clare, the building spent the following century regularly changing hands between the Normans and the Welsh. Nowadays, its well preserved magnificence is open daily for public viewing.

Take a trip to the Cardigan Heritage Centre and delve into the town's history via static and interactive computer displays. The centre has a riverside café and it regularly changes its exhibitions on local themes. The nature reserve at the Welsh Wildlife Centre is well worth checking out, while for some amazing nature, check out the Felinwynt Rainforest & Butterfly Centre.

For urban entertainment, the town offers some charming traditional shops, inns and eateries set in original Georgian and Victorian buildings. Golf fans can play a round at the course just north of Cardigan at Gwbert-on-Sea. For an evening's entertainment there are some charming local pubs, while the town's theatre features live shows and doubles as a cinema showing all the latest releases.

A short journey south of the town brings you to St Dogmaels, an area with an old fashioned and still working water mill, as well as the ruins of an ancient abbey. Overlooking the River Teifi is Cilgerran Castle, while also nearby is the ruined remains of a once magnificent medieval structure.

The A487 is the main road into the city with northerly connections from the M62, M6 and M56 motorways, and southerly connections from London along the M4. The nearest rail connection is at Fishguard, from where you can catch a bus to Cardigan. Cardiff has the nearest international airport and is about a two hour drive away.
