    The Taff Trail

    by HORSCHECK Updated Oct 5, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Taff Trail is one of the newer long distance footpath in Wales. It is used by both walkers and cyclists for trips of varying lengths between Cardiff Bay in the south and Brecon in the north.

    Between Cardiff Bay and Llandaff the trail follows the Taff embankment and crosses the Bute Park. All in all the trail covers a distance of 55 miles (88km).

    Ninian Park

    The old Ninian Park is home to Cardiff City FC (Bluebirds) that play in the English Championships League.

    The Stadium was opened in 1910 and has a capacity of 20.000. When I was there at the end of May 2005 the season was already over and unfortunately, the grass was just being exchanged.

    Nevertheless, I imagined how the atmopsohere in such a small old Welsh Stadium could be.

    Cardiff City – The Bluebirds

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cardiff City were founded in 1899 and are the only non-English side to have won any of the three major English competitions when they won the FA Cup in 1927. The club was originally formed as a way of keeping players from the Riverside Cricket Club together and in shape during the winter months and in 1900 they joined the Cardiff & District League for their first competitive season.

    Cardiff City have played their games at the Cardiff City Stadium since June 2009 when the club completed a state of the art 26,828 seater stadium on the site of the old Cardiff Athletics Stadium.

    Cardiff Blues.

    I must tell you about rugby in Cardiff, yes, I know, there is the Millennium Stadium, a state of the art stadium holding the Wales International Rugby and Football matches,also used for pop Concerts and other things.
    Right next door to this Stadium is Cardiff Arms Park, which used to be the home of Cardiff rugby club, who have since moved to Leckwith and share the ground with Cardiff FC.
    This rugby club is 178 years old, so it's quite an institute in the City.
    The old ground is there and guest are still welcome in the upstairs lounge and you are always assured of a warm welcome.
    The shop is still there if you wont to buy some memorabilia.
    They have a good supporters club and run trips to most away games.

    Equipment: Cardiff RFC have a small museum where you can see their many trophy's and learn about the club's history, just ask to be let in, as for security reasons it is often kept locked.

    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.
