Starting with Castell Caerdydd, which was originally built in the late 11th century and has been subject to many further renovations ever since, this castle owns a tremendously rich history. The grounds are picturesque and the interior of the castle is lavish and incredibly designed. There is a cafe or you can take a picnic and a blanket and enjoy the views while sharing lunch.
St Fagans National Museum of History is one of Wales’ most visited attractions and for good reason. The site is home to over forty buildings that have been painstakingly moved and rebuilt as before to show visitors how life used to be in bygone times. These include a farmhouse, Post Office, Iron Age Roundhouses and tannery, all on the grounds of the 16th-century manor house castle.
If you want to go more coastal, there are a variety of Cardiff Bay cruises to choose from Cardiff Cruises. You can have a blast on a high speed rigid inflatable boat with Bay Island Voyages. If you like the wind in your hair, The Open Boat is a must. Aquabus do 45-minute trips, taking in the nature reserve, the Barrage and Mermaid Quay.
Mermaid Quay is also great for a romantic meal and a few drinks after the Bay tour. With a wide range of restaurants and bars and outdoor seating, you also get a stunning view of Cardiff Bay. There is a 5 screen cinema complex called Everyman, one of a handful of boutique independent across the UK, showing mainstream, independent and classic films and the option to dine too. If you want a belly laugh together, visit The Glee Club, which has been host to some famous names over time.
If you fancy something more al fresco, take a picnic to Roath Park Lake or visit the cafe and ice cream kiosk in the Botanical Gardens. You can hire a boat and take a romantic trip out onto the lake, or simply meander through the beautiful woodland trails. There are courts for a spot of tennis or basketball and bowling greens if you both fancy a game?
Bute Park is another green space worth visiting. With an extensive arboretum and various woodland trails to follow, this stunning park is just behind Cardiff Castle. You can see the Animal Wall where different animal carvings have been placed as if peering over the wall.
The Wales Millennium Centre is a well-known and integral part of Cardiff. The uniquely styled arts centre provides musicals, ballet, opera and dance performances – perfect for a cultured evening with your date!
If you fancy bonding over a cupcake, Peace, Love and Cupcake is the place to go. Their Vintage Afternoon Tea is unrivalled in Cardiff and the sumptuous cakes are freshly baked daily. The setting is quirky and decadent, perfect for that first date!
For an indulgent experience, reserve a table at DeCourceys Manor, named The Foodie Venue by Wales Online. From the a la carte menu to Sunday lunch, the five-star menu will not disappoint.
Cardiff has been the backdrop for many films and television series. You may already know that the newer Dr Who TV series was filmed in various locations throughout Cardiff. If you consider yourselves ‘Whovians’, see how many places you recognise! Torchwood, Gavin and Stacey and Merlin have roots in Cardiff and cult films Human Traffic and 28 Weeks Later have also been part of Cardiff’s media culture.
There is still so much more to Cardiff and this stunning city will not disappoint you nor your date, whatever events you have lined up for your special night.
