Invested £3.40 each on bus tickets to Cardiff for the afternoon. The city centre was nice, it reminded me of Nottingham, however, it is the capital of Wales so this must be why there were some brilliant French looking buildings on the Boulevard de Nantes - see pic 3.
We then wandered down to the bay and it was absolutely buzzing. Like Nottingham, they had a man made beach on the main square. We were surprised as Cardiff is by the sea, so I can only assume that their real beaches must be a bit rubbish.
Great bay area though.
