Cardiff is a city of two halves: the hustle and bustle of the centre meets the tranquillity and relaxation of the bay. Whether you’re looking for fine dining or a more gentle approach to a date, Cardiff has a lot to offer. Here are five of our favourites.
The dock of the bay
Enjoy the beauty of Cardiff Bay and the surrounding area with either a leisurely stroll along the Cardiff Bay barrage coastal path or perhaps while away a few hours exploring the 10km Cardiff Bay trail. Pack up a picnic and take in that sea air.
Have your cake and eat it
Staying in Cardiff Bay, there are plenty of places to stop for a bite. Choose from one of the cosmopolitan coffee shops for a coffee and a slice of cake or indulge in something a little more extravagant, courtesy of French restaurant Entrecote Cafe de Paris.
Explore your love of music
Did you know that Cardiff is home to the oldest record shop in the world? Spillers Records was founded in 1894 and is still going strong today, compare collections and perhaps browse for something new. Bring the warm glow of nostalgia to your date.
History and the arts
Enjoy some classic and contemporary art at the many galleries in and around the city. The National Museum Wales has some of the finest travelling collections as well as historical installations depicting ancient civilisations in Wales
Visit The Doctor
No, not your doctor – The Doctor! Cardiff is home to the Doctor Who Experience, if you’re a fan then head over for your fill of Daleks and Cybermen. You can even have a go at flying the Tardis.
Tell us your tales of dating in Wales
Make your date a real talking point and make sure you stand out from the crowd. These are just a few of our favourites but there are hundreds of places to go on a date in Cardiff. Maybe you have an even better suggestion? Don’t forget to add them to comments and share your Welsh date experience.
