    solo travel, travel

    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).
