world cup quarter final

by octav676

hello, 2 desperate romanians here! Me and my uncle got our quarter final tickets last year in december and now i'm trying to book a hostel or a hotel, anything will do i guess, since i'm not able to find anything bookable. what do you suggest? it's almost february and something tells me if i don't book a room by next month i'm gonna drink beers 3 days non stop in pubs and I don't think i'm fit enough for that! PLEASE HELP US!

You definitely need to be quick, and will possibly have to stay outside the city (Pontypridd or Caerphilly are feasible possibilities). One or two places came up on here (though I don't know your exact dates):

You could also phone or email the Cardiff Tourist Info people; I'm sure they would have some suggestions.

thank you so very much for the tip. i guess i will have to rent a car if i'm gonna stay outside cardiff. how's the traffic anyway?
my dates are: arrival 5th october and departure on 8th october.

thaks alot again! i'm getting to it right now.

RE: RE: world cup quarter final

You won't necessarily need to rent a car; there are buses and trains to most places (unless you end up in a farm b&b up a mountain somewhere). To be honest, you would be better off not driving as traffic is likely to be pretty appalling on the day. Best book your accommodation, then come back here and ask for specific travel advice.

Good luck!

This is the campsite: http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/reviews.asp?revid=4154

The campsite is well recommended!

There is an excellent train service to Cardiff from many places near and far!

Close by in Wales with direct rail links are Penarth, Barry, Bridgend, Pontypridd, Caerphilly, Newport etc...

Pierson's in Penarth sounds nice if available: http://www.touristnetuk.com/WA/cardiff/accommodation/ac-serviced/penarth.htm#penarth

If you get really stuck, Bristol is a large city in England which is less than an hour away by train! But try and stay in Wales if you can... ;-)

Pob Lwc!

I stay at this campsite quite often, they take tents and they have a room with a kettle and fridge for backpackers. You could buy a very cheap tent at the local supermarket plus sleeping bags. It may just work out as cheaper than a hotel

Travel Tips for Cardiff

Parks and Gardens

by HORSCHECK

Cardiff has many nice Parks and Gardens, like Cathays Park, Roath Park or Sophia Gardens. The largest and probably most popular park is Bute Park, which used to form the grounds of the Castle. It stretches northwards from the Castle along the river Taff. The park is home to many events from beer festivals to open air concerts. It even has a Stonehenge-like circle of stones.

Lovespoons

by Carmela71

In this shop in front of the Cardiff castle, you can find the biggest and the smallest lovespoon.

According to Welsh folklore, these ornately carved spoons were traditionally made from a single piece of wood by a suitor to show his affection to his loved one.
I nice tradition, but diamond rings are still nicer lol

A visit to a coalmine

by percy961

Big Pit: National Mining Museum of Wales is a real coal mine and one of the UK’s leading mining museums. With facilities to educate and entertain all ages, Big Pit guarantees an exciting and informative day out

Roath Park :nice for a stroll

by uglyscot

Roath Park is a classic Victorian park with a man made lake and leisure park in Heath, Cardiff. It was constructed in 1894, and is a great asset for the outskirts of Cardiff. The park has an area of 130 acres, the lake [30 acres] is a haven for waterbirds- swans are plentiful, even a black pair; we saw a coot with her 6 chicks, as well as mallard. Geese of different varieties stroll around the grass and paths too, and squirrels race across the grass.
Boats can be hired so a pleasant time can be spent pottering on the lake. There is a cafe where you can sit and watch all the active folk.
There is a lovely rose garden where you can sit and enjoy the summer smells- the cut grass, the roses.
A short stroll takes you to the conservatory with its collection of tropical plants- cacti, bamboo, banana plants, ferns and flowers. There is a 'waterfall' and a lake full of fish - large carp, goldfish- a myriad colours, as well as some turtles. It is not too hot nor humid. It would be a great place to sit and read a book- we paid 0.60 as OAPs.
There is also a large enclosed play area for children.
It's a great place to relax, and forget you are in a capital city.

The Wales Centre

by Balam about Welsh Crafts/Shops

Conveniently located opposite Cardiff Castle's Main Gate, this popular gift shop is a great place for visitors to go if you are looking for some of those touristy Welsh gifts to take back home. They have a good selection of jewelry with Celtic motifs, Welsh Slate and coal ornaments which do look really nice. there is a large selection of key rings, cups, mats, stuffed Sheep and of course dragons and Welsh Love Spoons.
