Cardiff Bay Wales Reviews
Variety of eateries with differing cuisines. Fantastic views across the bay. Museums and places of interest to visit or perfect for just a walk and time to enjoy the atmosphere. more »
Good scenery and walk and highly recommended place to visit. Couldn't get into the Norwegian church cos they had a private booking. more »
Cardiff Bay overall is a nice place to walk around especially on a Sunday as it is nice and quiet. There are a few restaurants and shops located around the bay as well as some tourist attractions close by, yet over the years I feel personally, the bay has lost its lustre as more apartment blocks are being built around it which sometimes takes away from the bay.
Nice place to visit not very clean but nice the people there are very kind and helpful if you don't know where you are going there are a ton of shops around no matter where you are and pubs mostly older people around all of the people in the shops are very kind and helpful and the shops are clean and very tidy and cheap. I do think that they could do with some people cleaning up outside and people helping around and helping about.
