Dining out in Cardiff

by romancandle

Hi all!

I am going to be in Cardiff with a friend on Easter Sunday and Monday (12-13th) April. Any suggestions for eating out? Our budget is about £40 a meal, but we can go up to £60-70 for something really special. We don't want to go the chain restaurant route, e.g. ASK, Pizza Express, etc.

Thanks in advance!

You will be spoilt for choice. There are many good restaurants so its difficult to decide which ones are better than others.
The Mill Lane area has several fine eateries, as does Guilford Crescent, The Hayes, The Old Brewery Quarter and there are many others in Cardiff Bay.
http://www.bigcardiff.co.uk/cardiff-restaurant-guide.php has a comprehensive list. Avoid the Bosporous Turkish restaurant as its going down hill rapidly.
If you like Madeirean food then the Madeira restaurant is superb - http://www.madeirarestaurante.co.uk/

It's a taxi ride (or a waterbus trip across the bay or a walk across the barrage by day) but you might like to consider this place

Bistro style downstairs and more formal upstairs. Great view of Cardiff back across the bay

The weather forecast for this weekend isn't that great so it may be a bit breezy and too cold to walk across the barrage or even strolling around Cardiff Bay.
Play it by ear but the Cardiff football club are playing home on Monday against Burnley at 3.00 so Penarth might be a good idea as you might want to avoid the city centre before and after 3.00 until the evening when it should quieten down.

I know you've been and gone, but I was in Cardiff last week and discovered a couple of lovely places. I'd give special mention to Mulberry St. in Llandaff High Street. Wonderful food and great prices in a bistro style setting.

Travel Tips for Cardiff

Information - Web Links for Cardiff!

by M0B1US

It was Francis Bacon who once said that "Knowledge is Power", so without further ado, here are the most useful websites about Cardiff that I have come across:

The Cardiff Initiative - Local tourist information Website. Excellent events section.

wGuides.com - Cardiff - Commercial eGuide site. Very good overall but a bit out of date in places.

BBC Cardiff Information - Brilliant in depth history, really captures the essence of Cardiff!

BIG Cardiff - Pubs, Clubs and Restaurants!

Itchy Cardiff - Yep, more Pubs, Clubs and Restaurants! But a bit risque aimed at the 'younger' end of the market...

Arts4Cardiff The definitive guide to arts and cultural events in the Cardiff area.

Glamorgan Record Office - Historical Records of Cardiff with searchable database.

Anecdotal Cardiff An awesome little website full of dozens of anecdotal stories about Cardiff written and spoken by local people...

Cardiff City Council - Find out about their 'Keep Cardiff Tidy' campaign... ;-)

This is Cardiff - Aimed at the local community.

Cardiff Outdoor Group - Outdoor stuff in and around Cardiff...

There, that should give you more than enough background info for your visit to Cardiff! ;-)

3rd visit to Cardiff

by Carmela71

This time I was not much allowed for any shopping or sightseeing ƒ¼, we were really bad on time, as we had to pack all the stuff for the big moving.

My most visited place was the Barry?s dump LOL, not a great place to visit ;-)

Caedelyn park

by uglyscot

This park, once fields belonging to a farm, has been a public park since 1950.
There are two rugby pitches, two football pitches, two hockey pitches and what might be a bowling or cricket pitch [ a short- cut grassy roped off area], and a fenced off children's play area with swings, seesaw and slides, Around the perimeter is a footpath.
By day it is frequented by dogowners exercising their pets, or pensioners taking a stroll. In the afternoons football players practise. balls, kites , children and dogs.

Llandaff and Cardiff's Cathedral

by aaaarrgh

Hidden away in a hollow, in a village of north Cardiff is the city's Cathedral ~ Llandaff Cathedral ~ built in the 1200's.

Llandaff Village is a pleasant little place, very unlike the city centre, wrapped around a Village Green with a War Memorial, stone Village Cross, ruined Bell Tower and an ancient Bishop's Palace.

The cathedral itself is interesting and pleasant. It reveals itself very slowly and is very hard to see all of it at once. Be warned there are lots of steep steps to get to the Cathedral door. There are plenty of fierce gargoyles, pious statues and beautiful doorways on the outside. Inside you can pick up a leaflet published in many different languages, or buy a glossy guide book for 3 GBP - well worth the price IMO. The Cathedral aisles are filled with ancient, very worn tombs to departed noblemen and knights, a macabre 'memento mori' skeleton, and an old stone cross which was found built into a nearby shed wall!!

Back in the village, nearer the shops is the Bishops Palace, now open to wander around. Not much inside to see, except the old walls and a tranquil garden.

All great if you like your ancient religious history. One of only three places you can find medieval buildings in Cardiff!

To find Llandaff follow Cathedral Road out of the city centre northwest. Llandaff Village is just the other side of the Western Avenue ring road. Good Luck!!

Hillwalking in the Valleys

by M0B1US

The hills above the valleys provide some spectacular hillwalking with fantastic views over the tightly-knit mining towns huddled precariously against the sheer valley sides below.

Beautiful walks abound in the Rhondda and a good place to start is Blaencwm at the head of the Rhondda Fawr Valley which used to be a beauty spot on the tourist route of the 18th century, before the area was torn apart by a coal mine whose spot is still marked by a circle of stones.

It is a testament to the remarkable recovery of the Valleys with the end of coal mining that Blaencwm is once again a place of beauty, its hills richly clad with forests punctuated by several sparkling waterfalls - Panorama.

From here you can enjoy a medium difficultly two mile walk from which leads to the mound of Penpych affording wonderful views of the entire valley below.

Also from here you can walk to the site of a Roman marching camp at Twyn-y-Briddallt, or to the reservoir at Craig-y-Llyn with spectacular views over the Vale of Neath towards the Brecon Beacons in the distance...

Best of all you can get here from Cardiff in less than an hour by taking the train to Treherbert at the end of the line and walking the last few kilometres!
