Olympic countdown starts for Cardiff

Olympic countdown starts for Cardiff

Millennium Stadium

It’s a year to go until the Cardiff hosts the first events of the 2012 games - two women's football matches - on 25 July, 2012. Those events will kick-off at the Millennium Stadium two days before the London 2012 opening ceremony on 27 July. The city marked the ‘year to go’ with sporting demonstrations, street dances and an opportunity for locals and visitors to ‘try out’ a range of sports. The city expects an international audience to focus on Cardiff, with the games offering a legacy to provide excellent provision for future sports stars.


Don't forget that Cardiff is only 2 hours from London and could be an alternative base during the Olympics.  If you have any accommodation requests see contact details below:-
