Cardiff City Sleepover School Trips
Urdd Gobaith Cymru is the largest youth organisation in Wales, and the 4* City Sleepover is its newest residential centre. We first opened our doors in 2004, and to date, well over 100,000 children and youngsters have stayed with us. Adjacent to one of the world’s premier arts venues, we offer you the chance to explore Cardiff’s wide range of attractions, from museums to galleries, theatres, sport centres, stadia and many, more.
Why are Urdd great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
We can offer a variety of specialist courses for groups of all sizes, create a bespoke course to suit your school’s needs as well as arrange visits to a vast array of world class attractions in Cardiff and the surrounding area. Our team provides a service for schools who want to make the best use of teaching ‘outside the classroom’ by taking their students on an educational residential trip.

We work closely with local organisations and attractions to ensure that we offer a full schedule of exciting and enticing activities, such as:
The Cardiff Story museum
Cardiff City Stadium
Cardiff International White Water rafting facility
