Planning a trip to Cardiff in winter? Don’t forget to bring your umbrella and coat!
Wales is known for its rubbish weather, but having lived in Cardiff for 8 years there are plenty of things to do in Cardiff no matter the weather.
How to get to Cardiff
You can reach Cardiff city center by train from virtually any location within the UK.
Great Western Railway operate regular trains to and from Cardiff Central. Ticket prices vary depending on the times of travel. Here are some of the time scales from major cities;
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.
We are not English
We may speak the English language here in South Wales, but we are not English. Whenever I travel abroad, and I say I’m from Wales, people always think it’s part of England. It’s not.
If you a rugby fan, then Match Days are for you. Cardiff is the host for six nations, Heineken cup & world cup. But if you don’t like big crowds, rowdy people then stay well away from the town centre.
As Cardiff being the capitol of Wales and with a lot of other places nearby there are a lot of options for everyone on Bonfire night.
If you don’t want to travel far then the obvious choice is Sparks in the Park.
Sparks in the Park is situated in Coopers Field, Bute Park (behind the castle). This event is ticket only, and you will not be able to buy tickets on the door. Tickets are available from here. This event has over 200,000 fireworks and most of them reach 2,000ft.
Doors open at 16:30
Children’s displays starts at 17:45
Bonfire starts at 6:15
Main firework displays starts at 19:00 and last around 25/30 minutes.
