Accomodation 22nd August

by stefanfarr

Dear all,

i'm looking for 1 night accomodation for 22nd August (1 double room - one night)- Unfortunately i cannot find any accomodation on the internet (probably because there are u2 on the same night).

If you know of any hotel, apartment, hostel which might be available kindly send me details.

Thanks a real lot in advance.

Regards
Stefan

Hi Stefan- I've just checked the sites that I usually go to -Venere Booking.com, Hostelbookers etc - and as you say, there is nothing available-
I'd keep trying these sites, in case there are cancellations.(or extra rooms released)
Have you tried Tourist Info in Cardiff? Does the University rent out rooms?

I'm having the same problem trying to book accommodation in Valladolid - to see Bruce Springsteen-everywhere there seems to be booked up. The first time that I've had this problem-but also the first time I've tried to book anywhere in August - I usually travel out of peak season.
Good Luck!

The Uni usually let out accommodation, here's their web site.

I think you will find that all the accommodation is completely booked. The Tourist Information Centre is unable to help, my friend has booked a room in Newport, and I understand all the accommodation is also full there now.You may have to look further afield.

The last I heard, there are virtually no vacancies anywhere within a 30 to 40 radius of Cardiff.
Caerphilly, Newport are all full and some people are booking hotels in Swansea and Bristol.
All you can hope for is a late cancellation, but I bet that's what hundreds of others are hoping for too.

Travel Tips for Cardiff

Walkable City

by percy961

Cardiff has some lovely public parks within the city center.

Cardiff city center is fairly compact and walking is the best option to visit the attractions and sight. You can catch a bus from the city center to Cardiff Bay or stroll down there in about 20 minutes.

2nd Visit to Cardiff with Olga

by Carmela71

During my second visit to Cardiff, my best friend, Olga that was staying in Uk on that days, came for a short visit. So we travelled around.

Poor Stace he has to go for its 10th or more time to show as St Fagans, what a patient men!

Packing List

by Carmela71

Do not forget your camera, here are some views of the Milenium Stadium from the Norman tower, inside the Castle.

Not many times I had found a great sky for photos, while visiting, so if you still use film get a 200 one minimum just in case.

The Twmpath

by uglyscot

The Tympath is off Rhiwbina Hill, near the roundabout at Pantamawr Road. A sign for the footpath leads to it .
Archaeologists say it is the remains of a Norman motte, one of the largest in Wales. It is about 6.40m high on its west side and has a flat top of around 15m diameter. The ditch is still visible but the bailey and other buildings have disappeared.
A medieval ridge and furrow 4.88m wide crosses the field and extends about 100m towards the Cwm Nofydd stream at the foot of the field. Only a piece of what could be iron was discovered when the Twmpath was excavated in 1849.
Legends exist about the Rhiwbina Twmpath. It is said to be the burial mound of Iestyn ap Gwrgant, the last Welsh king of Glamorgan. At the end of 11th century, a group of Normans led by the Earl of Gloucester , Robert fitz Hamo, were sent by William I to suppress the Welsh in the south west. He was said to have sought the help of Eynion, a Norman knight, who was to pretend to make peace with Iestyn ap Gwrgant. The Norman army met Iestyn at Rhiwbina . After the battle, Eynion withdrew his men, leaving Iestyn's men outnumbered, and they were cut to pieces. Afterwards the dead were heaped up and covered with soil.
Another version has it that Iestyn was placed on his horse and buried upright in the mound. A wizard then cast a spell on the mound and anyone breaking into the mound would unleash the forces of Nature.
Another legend says the devil had travelled from London carrying a shovel of earth to dam the Taff valley at Castell Coch Gorge so that the people of South Wales would be drowned because they were becoming too religious.
Not sure where he was, he stopped at a stile to rest and asked a passing cobbler where the castle was. The cobbler noticed the Devil's tail and told him he was a long way from the castle and showed the devil a bag of shoes and boots which he said he'd worn out walking from the gorge.
The Devil decided to give up and threw the earth from his shovel into the nearby field, where
it remains till now.

Rhondda Heritage Park

by M0B1US

"So much more than just a mine of information..." ;-)

The Rhondda Heritage Park gives you a remarkable insight as to how the people and the coal mines of South Wales contributed so much to the industrial revolution of the World during the 19th and 20th centuries...

To find out about the rich cultural heritage of this time, which made Cardiff one of the most important industrial ports of its time in the World, all it takes is a half hour train journey through Wales' world famous mining valleys from Cardiff to Trehafod on the Treherbert line from Central Station.

This is a great day out for all the family including an underground tour and multimedia exhibition all about the Black Gold that has served as the driving force behind the shaping of the entire South Wales region...

Check out the brilliant website below for more info about this fascinating era - you would be truly missing out if you were to visit Cardiff without finding out something about Wales' mining communities...
