The bustling Welsh capital is a popular #BritishFamous destination for many reasons, including its proximity to the water, its burgeoning food scene, great shopping, and exciting events. Here are the top things you should do, eat, and see on your trip:
Have tea at Sunflower and I
This beautiful, quirky flower studio-cafe-bar venue is a Cardiff gem. Visit for tea and enjoy the eclectic furnishings and Polish desserts. Check to see if you can catch an evening of live music on the weekend.
Catch live music at Clwb lfor Bach
Immerse yourself in Welsh culture at Clwb Ifor Bach, where you are likely to hear both English and Welsh spoken. This local favorite spot is a nightclub, music-venue, Welsh language club, and community center. With both live performances and varied club nights, Clwb Ifor Bach is where you should head for your music fix.
Catch a rugby match at Principality Stadium
Catch one of the Under Armour 2017 games at the Principality Stadium (previously known as Millennium Stadium). Welsh rugby may be world famous but you’ll only get that great British experience by watching a game at home with the fans.
Walk or run along the Cardiff Bay Trail
Get active and explore Cardiff on this circular 10K (6.2 miles) route that takes you around Cardiff Bay, past historic landmarks and iconic buildings, and over to the seaside town of Penarth.
Go fossil hunting in Penarth
While you’re over in Penarth, why not try your hand at fossil hunting along the coast? See if you can spot fossils in the Jurassic rock and take home a pre-historic souvenir!
Enjoy modern British cuisine at The Potted Pig
If you’re a meat lover, be sure to visit The Potted Pig. With its seasonal menus, a focus on Welsh produce, and a bar specializing in gin, The Potted Pig is the perfect place for a special dinner. If you’re in a group of eight or more, consider one of the Feasting Menus, which offers you the chance to enjoy a whole suckling pig.
Go plant-based at Milgi
If you’re looking for a vegetarian option, consider Milgi, which describes itself as a “plant-based restaurant and bar.” With a focus on creating hearty, healthy dishes, and with well-priced natural cocktails, Milgi is a great spot to grab a casual but delicious meal.
