We’re past Christmas and New Year’s and people’s wallets may be feeling a bit lighter because of it. That’s why this edition of in the loop we will be focusing on attractions in Cardiff that will allow you to have a fun day out with little to no cost at all!
Our first pick is the National Museum Wales located in central Cardiff; Cathays Park. Costing absolutely nothing to enter, this is not one to be missed as there are always different and exciting exhibitions on so there’s something for everyone. Some of our personal favourites are the Tyrannosaurus Rex display, the giant 916 kilogram leather back turtle and the woolly mammoth!

Keeping in line with the museum theme, our second pick is St. Fagans National Museum of History. Located a little bit further away from the centre, in the village of St. Fagans, the museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th-century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth in 1948. We highly suggest taking a stroll through the beautiful secret garden!

Our final pick for this week is the Norwegian Church. Located in Cardiff Bay and originally a church for Norwegian Sailors, it is now one of the landmark buildings in Cardiff and has stunning panoramic views of the waterfront. The church may be considered small in size, but it makes up for it with its big history; it’s a little known fact that Roald Dahl’s was baptised there!
