Cardiff is the capital of Wales so it’s perfect for an introduction into Welsh culture. You can make use of your MOB´s membership and work in a coworking space in Cardiff for free. “Rabble is a small co-working space and we like to refer to ourselves as a community focussed work home for freelancers, small businesses and remote workers. We are on the top floor of an old Victorian building with loads of natural light and original features and our members are all super cool creative types who offer an insane amount of knowledge about their industry and their city. It’s a space where we are not only colleagues, we are friends… and we want you to be our friend too! Plus, we have our own Rabble Beer ;-)”, assures Dan Spain.
Even though it’s currently known as the fastest growing city in the UK, it is still small enough that you can cycle anywhere in 20 minutes!
“You can go boating in the beautiful lake in Roath and then head through Bute Park (the biggest green space in the City Centre) to the other side of town for a coffee all in a few hours. You can even head a little further out of the centre into the beautiful country and seaside for a full-on Welsh experience”.
Apart from working, what else you should do in the city? Cardiff Castle is a must. It’s also on the edge of Bute Park which is such a beautiful green space in the middle of the City. The National Museum is free and full of great artefacts. The Victorian Arcades are simply beautiful and Cardiff Market is the place to go for delicious Welsh Cakes. Cardiff Bay is great for a walk across the barrage with an ice cream as is visiting Roath Park Lake. If you like hidden gems, you can visit PIPES brewery in Pontcanna on a sunny Saturday for a cold beer. And if you’re not into beer, one of the best coffee roasters is right next door! Other cool things to do are visit the independent shops in Castle Emporium, see some independent cinema at Chapter Arts and head on down to the Depot for delicious street food and evening entertainment.
Last but not least, we all know that when travelling, tasting local food becomes a must as well. So, you can´t leave Cardiff without trying the Lamb Cawl. The best you can get is in a local pub or the small tea room, Pettigrew Tea by the castle. However, they have plenty of really good eclectic restaurants and cafés in the city but you can’t get better than traditional Welsh food in the capital. Don’t miss a chance to try some Welsh Rarebit and make it your top priority to go to Cardiff Market and buy freshly made Welsh Cakes, hot off the grill. Yummmm!!!!?
