Blackwood is near many of Cardiff’s attractions. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the fabulous Caerphilly Castle and the ever-popular Big Pit National Coal Museum. Also worth checking out are Castell Coch and Newport Cathedral.
If you love to play golf, take a trip to the St Mellons Golf Club. It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
Watch local favorites, the Llanwern A.F.C., battle their opponents at the iconic Newport Stadium, Newport. To look like a local, don’t forget to pack some blue, the colors of the Llanwern A.F.C..
To make the most of Blackwood, consider booking your accommodation at one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Village Urban Resort Cardiff, the Campanile Cardiff, and the Holiday Inn Express Newport.
