Last week we sloped off to Cardiff for a couple of days. Wales is not far for us, up the M5 across the Severn Bridge pay £6.70 and we are in.
Day one we went to Cardiff Castle
Ornate flooring, ceiling and a stairwell any princess would be proud of! (Can you spot the crocodile on the banister?) The clock tower was lovely too and built as a bachelor pad, but it took so long to build that by the time it was ready, the bachelor was married!
Double decker open top bus tour, always the best was to see get to way to see a city I think. We got off down at the harbour so I could go visit the Norwegian Church. Now I am neither religious nor Nowegian but after seeing this building whilst running the Cardiff half marathon three times, I have always wanted to investigate further.
Hot drink and cake consumed, after all it was half an hour since brekkie! Then time to explore, I was very excited to discover that Roald Dahl was christened there. A nice little building, glad to have ticked that off my ‘must visit’ list
Unfortunately we had left the Hotel in the sun, now it was cold and threatening to rain, so our walk around the quay was brief. Rookie mistake we had no jumpers or coats, what were we thinking?
That evening we partook of some Greek food, looking forward to our hols in 114 days.
Day three-last day
Inside was very beautiful and decorative, such a shame it was rarely used due to the lack of guest bedrooms.
Then it was home. Good little break away for family of three.
Apologies for typos, rubbish photo layout or anything else done of this post, but written it on my iPad, safe to say I won’t be doing that again, ready to pitch it out the window! (Edits to be made later, safer for me to just hit post at this point) Grrrrr
