Lovely afternoon spent here.

Great place for a wander on a sunny day. Amazing view from the big wheel, over the bay. Plenty of choice of places to have a coffee or food.

Not as beautiful as the pics

This isn't the best bay in the world. All of us were upset we came down so if you're a fairly young group and you aren't protesting at the welsh parliament. Give a miss

Great place to visit

Lovely up and coming area that is been regenerated. Spotlessly clean and COVID safe. Lots of history still to be seen around with the buildings and harbour side. Went to the cafe on the water, brilliant.

Great area for eating out
Oct 2021
Cardiff Bay is a great area for wandering around and there are lots of places to eat out. The whole area had a young vibe to it. Also worth walking a bit further along to the Wetland Reserve for a look see!

A place to visit in Cardiff

We were here on a Sunday morning. It was a bit busy after midday. Few car park nearby. There are so many cafes and restaurants to choose from. Most of them are opened at 12.00... Highly recommended Yakitori1, a nice Japanese restaurant near Tesco Express.

Gone the coal docks of yesteryear.
Sep 2021
I would have liked to have seen the coal docks in full swing ,no doubt it would have been very dirty but it would have stood out from the tourist orientated present day which to me lacks character.

Super signposted walk
Oct 2021
This was an easy walk which takes in all of the sites around Cardiff Bay. There are online maps with detailed guides of all of the sites. A great way to spend a pleasant few hours

Nice bar near the theatre restaurant. Everything was a bit drab though. All restaurants were in a good position but not necessarily quality - just the location. Most of the bay side restaurants you can’t just get coffee. Even though they were empty. I can never understand why places turn customers away when they’ve got loads of empty tables at 4pm. Would not return. Stayed in premier inn for £68 per night. That was probably more than it was worth for the area. How can you have such an imposing theatre with crap and rubbish clearly visible in the massive glass windows. Shame. The theatre manager needs to look from the outside in I think.
