Of course, once you’ve worked up a healthy appetite, The Old Cottage provides the perfect spot to relax, refuel, and reflect upon your day.

The countless attractions of the centre of Cardiff are also close by, including the National Museum Cardiff, with its huge collection of world-renowned impressionist and post-impressionist work, 1930s surrealism, and 20th century art from Wales. Alongside the art, there’s also a number of natural history, archaeology, and geology exhibitions to explore. Once you’ve had your fill of culture, The Old Cottage offers the perfect spot to refuel.

No visit to Cardiff would be complete without a trip to Cardiff Castle. Dating back to 50AD, this imposing structure is sure to impress with its elaborate gothic architecture. The iconic Millennium Centre is also close by in Cardiff Bay. Nicknamed the Armadillo, this vibrant venue plays host to a wide range of concerts and performances all year round.
