blank tabFLAT HOLM ISLANDTourist Attraction



Flat Holm has been a sanctuary for monks since the Dark Ages, and has since been a refuge for Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, a home for pirates, smugglers and lead miners, and a hospital for cholera victims. It was fortified in Victorian times and also during the Second World War, and holds a special place in history for transmitting the first radio message sent across water, by Marconi in 1897. Now it is a Local Nature Reserve with an abundance of flora and fauna, which makes a guided tour a wonderful three-hour experience.

Calennig New Year Celebrations - December to January

Cardiff's New Year celebration has been christened 'Calennig', meaning New Year's Gift. The 'Calennig' is a decorated piece of fruit taken by children from door to door wishing good heath & prosperity for the coming year. Traditional Calennig verses were sung and a small gift would be given in return, often a new penny.
