Peak Season:

Although it’s a bit rainy all year round, booking flights to Cardiff in the summer (June to August) is your best bet for staying dry. The months of June, July, and August are known to be the driest part of the year, and sunny days offer warm, comfortable temperatures, and cool, mild evenings. The Cardiff Big Weekend in August is the UK’s largest free outdoor music festival offering three full days of excellent live music and entertainment from a variety of artists. The Festival takes place outside in the Civic Centre with each night closing with a magnificent firework display. The city also hosts an annual summer festival which provides numerous events and activities for everyone with the added bonus of many of them being free.  Local residents and visitors can enjoy;

  • Cardiff carnival – A day event that turns the City Centre into a flamboyant mixture of colour, style and energy. Individuals of all ages can get involved in hi-energy dance, Brazilian martial arts, family-friendly burlesque and magic shows.
  • Cardiff international food and drink festival –  Classed as one of the most popular highlights of the summer, Cardiff’s international food and drink festival offers and array of delicious produce from local, national and international suppliers for all to enjoy.
  • Cardiff Harbour Festival hosts the Extreme Sailing Series™ presented by Land Rover – At Cardiff Harbour Festival spectators can watch numerous elite level sailing teams go head to head for free at Cardiff Bay beach

Off-peak Season:

If you’re not a sun worshipper, then you’ll have no problem coming here in the off season. Booking a cheap flight to Cardiff in the winter (December to February) will undoubtedly afford you with rainy days and cold temperatures, but one thing is certain – the beauty and culture of this city never dies down, even when the good weather does.

Like the rest of the United Kingdom, Cardiff is no stranger to seasonal climate and inclement, unpredictable weather. To stay on the safe side, expect the unexpected when you book flights to Cardiff. Winters are wet, and temperatures crawl down to negative temperatures, so pack warm clothing and always an umbrella – no matter what time of year. Summers (June to August) on the other hand, are known to bring sunny days (between the rainy ones) and temperatures in the mid-20s. Rain and wind roll in during springtime (March to May), but the mild May weather and pretty, delicate flowers make up for the occasional shower.

Why visit the city?

While Cardiff might not be a centre for international influx, it does have quite a bit going on within its borders. The architectural attractiveness of this small city is absolutely marvelling. Visiting the city there’s no way in getting around its beautiful Cardiff Castle, its neoclassic Civic Center, and the illustrious Cardiff Bay, where the waterfront has become a well-developed centre for people to meet and gather on sunny afternoons in the summertime. 

Take a cheap flight to Cardiff and find yourself with plenty to do, between museums, art galleries, restaurants, nightlife, and natural history but there are also options for those visitors who instead seek places of solitude away from urban chaos. Green space, gardens, and esplanades are all over the place, allowing you to make the choice between bustling city life, and a peaceful walk in the park.
