Flat Holm Island

Not strictly in Cardiff, but just five miles off the coast, the stunning island of Flat Holm is a different world with a wealth of history and wildlife. You’ll be amazed at how much there is to discover. Since the Dark Ages, the island has been a retreat for monks and acted as a sanctuary for Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, silver miners and smugglers. It’s perhaps most famous for receiving the first ever radio message across water by Guglielmo Marconi in 1897.

A day visit by boat provides you with three to six hours on the island. Free guided tours will be available on certain dates. You can also visit the souvenir shop and enjoy a drink at The Gull and Leek, Wales’ most southerly pub. Overnight visits can be arranged.
