I guess scatter through the streets with your umbrella up… It was more or less pouring down, and not making our day trip from London a very good one 🙁 I can imagine it would be a nice place to go for a stroll on a sunny day, but with the rain coming down time was mostly spent indoors – at Cardiff Castle, a few cafes we saw on the way, and with dinner at Mermaid Quay (mermaidquay.co.uk) in Cardiff Bay (visitcardiffbay.info). The latter would also be a very nice place to spend a warm summer day. Will I visit the Welsh Dragon again? I would say 50/50… And if I do, I’d choose to look into what lies beyond Cardiff…
London – Cardiff – London were travelled by train. As I didn’t book the train tickets, I have no idea with which train company. We did 1st class, which was nice. Don’t know if it would have been much different from 2nd class though. And as if the rain hadn’t done enough “damage”, we were delayed due to flooding on the way back to London 🙁
