As home to the world renowned Welsh National Opera, the world’s oldest record shop, the largest collection of French impressionist paintings outside London, an ambitious multi-artform arts centre, Dr Who and much more, Cardiff is already on the cultural map. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Now the cultural map is going digital! Visit Cardiff has launched a new online cultural trail around the Welsh capital that takes in everything from Castles to Cathedrals, Parks to Pottery and Vinyl to Vivaldi. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

City Council Leader, Cllr Phil Bale, said: “The cultural landscape of Cardiff is changing all the time as it continues to build on its rich and varied history to become the thriving creative and cosmopolitan city that you can see on this map.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The map has been developed as part of the Cardiff Concierge Programme which aims to improve the experience of visitors to the city. The programme helps provide front of house staff in venues and hotels across Cardiff with knowledge of the full range of cultural activities and available in the city. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Businesses are also being encouraged to join the new Visit Cardiff Network. Membership offers the chance to gain input into the destination marketing of Cardiff, opportunities to co-exhibit and attend events and exhibitions and promotion via Visit Cardiff’s website, social media channels and e-newsletter. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
