Visits to Flat Holm Island

Flat Holm Aerial

Our highly rated Cardiff walking tours are definitely one of the best ways to get to know Cardiff and the city has plenty of other activities and sights for both visitors and locals to enjoy. But very few people think of visiting the island of Flat Holm or Ynys Echni, just five miles from Cardiff in the Bristol Channel.

Trips and short stays are available all year round. Althgough the island is small, just half a mile across, it is drenched in history; the vikings, pirates, 19th century gun batteries, a cholera hospital, 2nd world war anti aircraft emplacements, a lighthouse, and of course, lots of seagulls!

The island is well worth a visit, especially if you want to do something a little out of the ordinary. More information at
