Hoping to hear back from u...
Thank u in advance...

Train times and fares on www.nationalrail.co.uk Journey time is around 4 hours+ (some are longer, some a bit shorter), involving 2 or more changes to get from one London railway station to another. Not cheap either: 69GBP return (193 if it's an 'open' return). Single tickets start from 30.50GBP if brought in advance, which is not always easy anyway (you need a credit card which wil be accepted online, and tickets are not posted abroad).

Using the coach will be slower but cheaper. Takes nearly 6 hours minimum (witrh a wait in central London or Heathrow), return is 50.50GBP. http://www.nationalexpress.com/coach/index.cfm

There is only bus or train to choose from, I'm afraid. It's a considerable distance, and you are travelling across the country which always makes for a lengthier journey (it's just the way the UK is).

If you can change your flight (or haven't booked yet) it will be considerably easier to fly Pisa-Bristol with Easyjet, and certainly cheaper to get to Cardiff from there. Or even Ryanair to Birmingham.

There is also an unpublicised way of doing it by train. There are rains that go through Birmingham New Street to Stansead Airport (and back) and from Birmingham there's 2 routes to Cardiff by train.

It's not so much an unpublicised route as one to no real advantage. The nationalrail site gives the most 'normal' route (i.e. most obvious/convenient).

Nearly 3 or 3+ hours to Birmingham (mostly with 2 changes) (return from 52GBP very much upwards: 52GBP is the saver return fare) then another 2 hours to Cardiff (another 50+GBP return).

You could try www.megabus.com - coaches leave from Victoria Station in London.
If you book in advance you can get fares from £1 - £10 one way (these are regularly available).

Trip takes about 3.5 hours.

You will need to book though to get these fares. Tip: if you think you might miss the coach you are booked on book another for a couple of hours later for a £1.

This is a handy little route planning site at visitbritain.

Unfortuately I don't think the wales tourist board is involved with visit britain to any great extent now. There's been some major expenditure cuts. I'm pretty sure last year (or the previous year) the Welsh tourist board was substantially subsidising rail tickets between London and Cardiff.

Can not find the details any more though sorry.
But check prices of buying tickets before you get to bristian becasue there are some good toursit deals available if you hunt around.

Travel Tips for Cardiff

go shopping in the city...

by CarolynShort

go shopping in the city centre, explore the victorian shopping arcades and try out the bars and restaurants on offer. Also recent Cardiff Bay development worth a look for more bars, restaurant and shops.

CIA ?

by diocletianvs

I didn't know what to think when I noticed on the city map that the building next to the hotel was marked as CIA. First look through the window and it did look like some intelligence agency's headquarters. To make things worse, it seemed they were recruiting new agents on what otherwise seemed as peaceful Saturday afternoon.

After making a semi-official inquiry I realized that the CIA stands for "Cardiff International Arena" and that the crowds were simply waiting for their concert tickets.

I wonder why this arena is the only place in Cardiff where I didn't notice bilingual signs. Simple ARC (Arena Rhyngwladol Caerdydd) would cause less questions ;)

Wonderful stadium

by neilward

A fantastic place to watch a major sporting event,I`ve been fortunate enough to see England win here in rugby,Arsenal win here in big FA Cup games and to see severalother big rugby matches.The infastructure in the city is great,plenty of bars,park and ride,good train links and motorways.The beers £2.50 a pint,which is usual for UK !!!!!!,soft drinks are £1.60 for a small bottle,wich is expensive,captive audience though !!!.
The stewards here are very helpful and full of information,how to get out of there,where to eat and drink etc. Cameras and scarf !!!

Caerleon...Ancient Roman town

by CarolynShort

10 minutes east of Cardiff (just off the M4) is a little town called Caerleon. Once a major Roman fort, there is still the remains of a ampitheatre, and a Roman baths, now enclosed in a museum, which also houses various exhibitions and artefacts. Admission £2.10 (free for under 19's). For further details try www.caerleon.net, or www.nmgw.ac.uk/rlm/index.en

Cardiff bay statues 2

by Carmela71

It has become a popular area, as it is closed to the city center.

Next to the bay you can find some statues and places to seat.

I had been twice here but I had only had lunch there once.
