Cardiff kids activities - Caerphilly

Cardiff kids activities are extensive in their variety and number covering outdoor kids activities, indoor kids activities and kids activities in Cardiff Bay.

The kids activities include cycling, walking, nature trails and park activities. We have tried to include activities that are free or reasonably inexpensive as entertaining children during the summer holidays or half term can be tiring, frustrating and expensive.

With the weather often dictating where you go we have included the favorites such as leisure centres, swimming pools and play centres

Cardiff Bay is a good source of activity with Techniquest, the Road Train, World of Boats and the Dr Who Experience all available. In addition the bay often has events like the food fairs, and visiting attractions on Roald Dahl plaza.

One of the best of the Cardiff kids activities available this summer the area was in front of the Millennium centre. Which was turned into a beach! It was a real success which means it will probably be repeated next year.


Traveling outside Cardiff brings in to play a large variety of small and farm animal centres. One of the best loved of all of the Cardiff kids activities.
