Other noteworthy sights include the BBC Drama Centre in the city center, where such TV shows as the dramas Casualty and the Welsh-language Pobol y Cwm are recorded; and the city`s two grand cathedrals: Cardiff Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Llandaff Cathedral (Anglican), the latter dating from the 12th century.

Package Map Picture
Ireland

Ireland, `the Emerald Isle`, offers some of the most beautiful landscapes and views in the entire world, from castles in ruins in verdant valleys to rocky cliffsides overlooking the Atlantic. It is a country that is fiercely proud of its native language and culture, and venturing outside the major cities, you will be able to view a more rural experience. This is most popularly achieved by driving the 111-mile Ring of Kerry in the western part of the country, or visiting the charming Gaeltacht where Irish is only spoken. But definitely do not discount the cities, home to charm, history, and great landmarks, such as the cosmpolitan capital of Dublin, and large cities such as Limerick and Cork.
Wales

With such beautiful valleys, mountain peaks, and shoreline, Wales is considered one of the most picturesque parts of the United Kingdom. The Welsh culture is one that is on display everywhere you look, from the capital, Cardiff, where hundreds of years of history meet modern-day innovation, to the valleys of Glamorgan, to the beautiful north where mountains such as Mount Snowdon are just a short drive away from gorgeous seaside resorts such as Llandudno. Visit the beautiful castles, enjoy hiking and nature-watching, or enjoy such recreational activities as horseback riding and golf. Wales has quite a few options for those looking for a charming and breathtaking getaway.
