    Car Hire Cardiff

    Cardiff Car HireThe area was originally developed by the Romans in 75 A.D. and grew slowly over the centuries. However, during the Industrial Revolution, Cardiff experienced a strong period of growth, due mostly to its geographical location. The city rests on a relatively flat plain, surrounded by small hills with large coal deposits, which was, and still is, a resource in high demand. Hire a car in Cardiff, the capital and largest city in Wales. Home to 317,500 people, Cardiff is definitely a city on the rise. Cardiff has had more than 11.7 million visitors since 2006. There are plenty of historical landmarks, museums, restaurants, clubs and more for you to enjoy during your stay.

    During your time in Cardiff, UK, make sure you visit the Cardiff Castle. This ancient fortress has an incredible amount of history behind it. It was originally started as a Roman fort, built in 55 A.D. In 1091 it was redeveloped into a Norman keep by a nobleman, Robert Fitzhammon.

    Over the years the building fell into disrepair, and William Burges was commissioned in the 19th century to lead a large refurbishment of the castle in a medieval, Gothic style. The addition of luxurious, ornately designed rooms makes this castle truly a marvel of the Gothic Revival Movement. The castle has even hosted a couple of rock concerts in its day, and can seat over 10,000 people.

    For a great day trip, take the A470 Highway north to the Brecon Beacons National Park. Drive over to "Waterfall Country" for an outdoors experience like no other. You can hike through lush green forests, enjoying the soothing sounds of the flowing water and bird calls. The rivers Mellte, Hepste and Nedd Fechan meet and cascade their way over moss covered ledges into pools below.
