從倫敦到卡地夫(Cardiff,又譯加地夫、加的夫、加迪夫、卡迪夫)自駕車程約為3個半小時,途經科茲窩(Cotswolds)地區,還能順道至科姆堡 (Castle Combe)走走。

▍卡地夫市場 Cardiff Central Market

每個城市的傳統市場,總是能呈現它最在地的一面。卡地夫Many fresh fruits and vegetables are sold on the first floor of the market.我們發現了間威爾斯鬆餅(Welsh Cake)專賣店,口味多樣化包含檸檬、巧克力等。這小鬆餅口感類似司康,但是更濕潤一些,甜度適中,還能吃到淡淡的麵粉香味。市場On the second floor, there are several small food shops and specialty shops, such as vinyl records.

▍浪漫的拱廊商店街 Arcades

卡地夫被譽為拱廊商店街之都(City of Arcades),因為市區有7座拱廊商店街密度之高,分別是Castle Arcade、High Street Arcade、Duke Street Arcade、Dominions Arcade(建於1921年,最年輕)、Morgan Arcade(保存最完整)、Royal Arcade(歷史最悠久)和Wyndham Arcade。

拱廊商店街建築呈現華麗的維多利亞與愛德華式風格,分別於19世紀末、20世紀初期建造。共有超過100間商店進駐,其中不乏餐館、知名品牌,還有獨立各色商店。從火車站走到市區,會先經過皇家拱廊商店街。

Cardiff Castle

The castle has a history of more than 2,000 years, from the Roman Empire to the modern Bute Family. The castle is located in the city, showing the residence of the Bout family, the refuge tunnel during World War I (the castle became the refuge Wartime Shelters during World War II), The Roman Wall, Norman Bunker (The Norman Keep) and Clock Tower.

▍卡地夫灣 Cardiff Bay

卡地夫灣從前是世界煤礦出口的重要港口,後來隨著煤礦業的衰退沒落。近10年來,當地政府積極改造卡地夫灣,將它打造成觀光景點,歐洲著名的歌劇院威爾斯千禧中心(Wales Millennium Centre)座落於此,亦有許多餐廳與酒吧林立。如今,卡地夫灣成為旅客喜愛的休閒去處。
