Celebrate the Rugby World Cup with a weekend in Wales, and make sure you visit National Museum Cardiff’s Kick-offs and Keepsakes exhibition – the story of rugby through Welsh eyes.
With Wales undefeated in the World Cup so far, why not celebrate their success with memorabilia from the Welsh Rugby Union’s archives and stories and photos tracing the Rugby World Cup’s amazing history? Kick-offs and Keepsakes features a range of artefacts and historical items from teams from around the world, including a hand-carved whale’s tooth from Tonga and unique totem pole from Canada.
With Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium hosting matches up until the quarter-finals stages,
the city will be buzzing with rugby fever and fans from around the world. Running until October 15, the National Museum is also home to Wales’ national art, natural history and geology collections, so you’ll have plenty to occupy you during your stay.
If you’re looking for good value car hire for a weekend in Cardiff, collect a car from the Easirent depot at Cardiff Airport. Cardiff Airport lies approximately 12 miles from the city centre, making car hire the most flexible way of travelling around Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan area; the airport is approximately 30 minutes from the city centre; the freedom of your own car for the weekend also makes it easy to explore Vale’s picturesque coastline.
