Cardiff Bay Wales reviews
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... more »
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. more »
Great place to visit , a good selection of restaurants catering for many different tastes in food, boat trips and some fascinating building architecture
Really impressed place. Having lots of fun there. Taking boat, walking round along the bay. Family and kids friendly. Would visit again.
