“I remember I used to drive down to the barrage and eat wagamamas in my car whilst listening to music, mainly easy life, and watch the sunset. It's such a calming place and a nice little end to a day. Best time to get there is around sunset because it gets so beautiful but cold, so take a coat with you!”More Info
“I would walk down to the pier on my own and listen to beats at like 3am sometimes. Again it's so peaceful and if you stay out late enough you can watch the sun rise. I would also run past the pier when I’d go on my runs during lockdown too. It's a beautiful place.”More Info
“Crack a couple of cold ones and go sit in bute park on a lovely summers day. Me and the boys would do this all the time every summer. Grab a ball. Go play footy and drink in the sun, all of us coming home with sunburn but it was worth it. Also on a rainy day its a lovely walk but I’d suggest going in summer because everyone is out.”More Info
“Before I moved to London I lived in Radyr and I was about a 30 minute walk from the castle. My girlfriend and I would go drive there sometimes and just enjoy the fresh air and the nature surrounding it. It's a gorgeous place. I’d definitely recommend going in the morning when you have the nicest cold air hit your nose. It's amazing.”More Info
“The home of cardiff city football club. The best time to go watch would be on game day but you can also go down to grab programmes or a shirt to support the boys and make some noise. It's an amazing stadium and it's also where wales play they home games too, so if you’re lucky enough to have them play whilst you visit, make sure to see them too.”More Info
“Another great place to go if you have nothing to do. Go for a swim, go on the slides, then get kicked out. Me and the boys would stay in the bowl and have fights to see who the last child stay in the bowl. Then we’d obviously get kicked out but it was so fun.”More Info
