Cardiff Bay

Cardiff

It’s time for a round-up of the things I visited in Cardiff and, of course, to share some new pictures from the city. All the links in this post are towards other posts of mine, published previously. Cardiff – What to do In Cardiff we were able to race each other on a well-known track […]

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle is a must see if you are visiting Cardiff. It was quite busy when we visited, despite being Autumn. As usual, I picked a few highlights to show from the Castle. We didn’t have a lot of time to visit it, so we didn’t book the guided tour, but I will book it, […]

Me at the Big Pit

Big Pit

I was very excited to talk about the Big Pit, the National Coal Museum of Wales. It is a free museum and is so worth a visit. Saying that is a museum is a bit strange, because it is more like an experience. Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside the mine, but I […]

Castle at St Fagans Museum

St Fagans Museum

St Fagans Museum is a must see if you are visiting South Wales. It won the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2019 and I can understand why. So far I’ve seen only one other finalist, V&A Dundee and I wasn’t impressed with that, you can check my review to see why. St Fagans Museum […]

Entrance to Tredegar House

Tredegar House

Tredegar House looked very impressive and I wanted to visit it. So, on our holiday in Wales, we stopped by. Unfortunately we didn’t allow for a long time to visit the house and we didn’t get to stay as long as we wanted to. The fact that the staff and volunteers there were so nice […]

The Alyn

Wrexham

Wrexham

Yesterday we went to Wrexham for the day. I’ve been to the area before. I visited Erddig, a beautiful stately home and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This time we went in the town to see the city centre and that was a great idea. I ended up buying a lovely coat and a book. Wrexham is the […]

Electric Mountain

In our trip to Wales, we’ve been to Electric Mountain. The name is pretty much self explanatory, as it’s a guided tour of the Dinorwig Power Station. The power station is in Elidir Mountain and it’s one of the largest man made caverns in Europe. The power station converts the power of water into electricity […]

Rex Whistler

Rex Whistler was a British artist born in 1905. He had an amazing talent, but he died in the Second World War, at only 39. He was commissioned at the age of 23 to paint a mural at Tate Gallery restaurant, quite impressive I might add. He also painted a few murals. The most renowned […]
