WHAT TO DO IN CARDIFF

The beautiful capital city of Wales, home to national cultural and sporting institutions, and many historical landmarks. I took a weekend trip down and tried to explore places I would never really think about going to, including cafes and out of the ordinary shops. The aim of this blog post is to give you a guide to your next adventure in the amazing city of Cardiff.

Firstly, I would recommend to check if there are any events on at The Principality Stadium formally known as The Millennium Stadium. When I went, I saw Ed Sheeran live on his Divide Tour and he was incredible. The link to their Events page is Principality Stadium events page where you can choose entertainment from Concerts to Rugby to Motorsports to enjoy on your trip. Or other arena’s Similar including St David’s Hall, The Motorpoint Arena and The Swalec Stadium, because what’s better than a concert, right?

Another event I love to go to is the Football at the Ninian Park. Although this was not included in my weekend trip there, I love to go to the football with my family throughout the year so if you are there on the day of a match I would defiantly recommend buying tickets as there is no better atmosphere than the Welsh games.

Instead of going to a common chain café, I like to discover independent places that cannot be found back near my home. A perfect little ice cream shop I found was Coco Gelato which was around a 20 minute walk from the town center but defiantly worth it. Their ice creams taste out of this world and their Freak Shakes looked crazy delicious. There was a huge selection of ice cream flavors from Bueno gelato to Blueberry gelato so there shouldn’t be a problem with them not having the right flavors.

Another place to visit is Cardiff Bay. They have a huge variety of fun things to do for all the family. There is also a Capital FM Cardiff Bay  beach festival from the 6th of July to the 2nd of September 2018. Cardiff Bay have over 30 places to eat and drink, around 23 attractions and 7 hotels, so it is save to say that you will not get bored when there.

Located at the side of Cardiff Castle is Bute Park. Known for their stunning wildlife and award winning Horticulture, it is the loveliest place to relax and enjoy a picnic. As it is around a 2 minute walk to the shops, it is easy to just go and buy some food from the stores for a picnic and carry it over but otherwise, there are three cafes in the park. They also host cool events like Race for Life and Open Air theatres. Link to their activity schedule: Bute Park Events.

Lastly, The Roof Garden located in Cardiff Castle is a must see. It has the most extraordinary embroidery around the walls and beautiful detailing. While in the castle, you should also check out the view of the city from the top. The Castle also has lights to make it glow at night, although it closes at 4 pm it is still scenic to see from outside and absolutely beautiful in the dark.

    I love Cardiff! I got to uni there and, every summer, I miss the city so much! Coco Gelato is so close to where all the students live, so well done for finding it haha
    Next time you go, you have to explore the arcades; they’re little alley ways within the city centre, near the castle, which look like Diagon Alley with their cobbled roads! You say you love independent places, so this is the perfect place to go for independent food shops and other retailers.
    Glad you loved it! x
