Don't miss the Cardiff bay at all. It is a very nice place to go for leisure. Replete with several restaurants and bars. Many festivals are active and you can also enjoy walking by a part of Bristol channel.

Having had some serious money spent on it over the recent few years, Cardiff Bay has some great shops and restaurants. Plenty of night life and regularly busy most evenings, especially towards the end of the week.

Plenty of bars in the bay but try the Jazz Cafe in city centre near Castle entrance. Great food and great atmosphere with live music.
