“Plenty of eating places.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We found this a strange place, very little to do other than eat. This is the opinion though of an outdoor person with teenagers. if you like Doctor Who and the cinema it's great. There was a fun area, but more for younger kids.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

I did not expect such a vast array of attractions, shops, cafés etc to be located along the bay.
Area is very clan and tidy, and all the shop owners are very willing to help tourists.

I would love to return to Cardiff Bay in the Future.

“Lots of places to eat”

Lots of choice of places to eat and the view is very nice, particularly at sunset. An evening stroll here is very romantic.
