Travel Tips for Cardiff

by husshho

see the harbour and drink a cup (or pint if you like) of something in the Norwegian Church. Pay special attention to the carvings on the wall beside the church. Drinking great coffee in the Coffee Republic shop in one of the main streets (whose name i can't remember.)

Brains for YOU

by uglyscot

I don't quite know where to put this tip. I noticed a huge tanker on its way to delivering beer, then saw adverts, and then at the railway station saw the brewery, so surely nothing could be more local than the local beer- not that I drink.

Get a good seat at the Millennium Stadium

by vichatherly

I've been lucky enough to have been here a few times now. The seats in the staduim can range from excellent to awful.

Seats are divided up into U - upper, M - Middle or L - lower. A good tip for you is always to go for seats in blocks or M7 to M11 or M28 to M32 to be closer to the pitch or U7 to U11 or U28 to U32 higher up seats.

Avoid, if you can, seats like L39 to L42 or L18 to L21, as you will probably end up seeing more of the game from the big screens on each end of the stadium.

Fairytale Castle

by SabrinaSummerville

I first saw this Cinderella-style castle from a distance and it struck me that it was unlike anything that I had ever seen before in the British Isles. With towers and turrets soaring above the forests that surround it, I was not surprised to discover that Castell Coch (the Red Castle) has been used as the setting for more than one Robin Hood movie.

I have yet to get closer to this beautiful building, and when I do I'll be back with more information.

Barry Island

by percy961

Barry Island is very much the traditional seaside resort with its long sandy beach, amusement arcades and fun fair, attracting visitors from far afield. Seafront shops will tempt your taste buds with ice-cream, candy floss and fish and chips. And in summer months weekends are buzzing with street theatre and live music.

The pleasure park has over 50 rides and attractions, for all ages including the Log Flume, Viper Ride, Pirate Ship, Galloping Horses and many others.

The nearby Barry Island Railway Heritage Centre provides a glimpse of the Age of Steam, with exhibits of memorobilia, and restored locomotives and rolling stock.
