A day at Dyffryn Gardens, Cardiff

Although I have always have a serious urge to travel, these
past few weeks I have been itching to get away and to also get some
inspirations and content for you guys!

So last Sunday (it was supposed to have been Saturday, but
gin happened the night before) I went a on a solo mini adventure to Dyffryn
Gardens.

Location
Dyffryn Gardens are based on the outskirts of Cardiff which
can be accessed by foot, car, bus and train.

Transport
I got the X2 bus from Cardiff Wood Street which cost me £5.50
for a day ticket. The bus took around 25/30 minutes to get to St Nicholas.

From the bus stop in St Nicholas, the walk to the gardens is
around 25/30 minutes.

TIP: the walk to the gardens was all down country lanes with
no actual foot paths, be careful!

I was informed that the gardens are free of charge but you
have to pay to get into the house, but this is not the case.

ENTRY – £9.90

I obviously had to grab a map because I like to collect mostly
everything from my travels and to be fair if I didn’t have this map I probably
would have gotten lost/not seen most of the gardens.

 Dyffryn Gardens consists of 9 different gardens and loads of
other different areas and buildings for you to check out.

TIP: Dyffryn Gardens will be at its prettiest in the
spring/summer months when the flowers are in full bloom.

The gardens also have a café and a gift shop. So if you need
to sit down then it’s in the main house, you won’t miss it.

I took a packed lunch with me, and I sat on the Great Lawn and
ate it in the sun. For my first solo adventure, I thought I would start off
small. I am planning on bigger trips potentially this year, but definitely next
so watch this space.

The National Trust have lots of locations around Cardiff
& the South Wales area which are on my list for when the weather gets a
little better here (if it ever does).
