Places to visit

Here are some free places you can visit in South Wales...

1) Cardiff Museum - Located by Cardiff city hall, this museum is full of detailed history and they also have art there too! Entry is free!

2) St Fagans- The museum of welsh life- I always love a trip to St Fagans! So much there to explore and learn and there are also a couple of traditional shops where you can buy some yummy treats or buy some lovely gifts if you wish! ENTRY FREE- Parking charges apply though!

3) Welsh mountains!- There are so many hike routes! The sugarloaf and Blorenge in Abergavenny, Breacon Beacons, Pen-y-fan! The Skirrid and many more.

Parking is usually free for these routes but can be popular in the summer (especially Pen-y-fan) when its nice so get there early! You wont be disappointed the views are incredible!

4) Cosmeston Lakes & Country Park- Beautiful lakes with plenty to do! Located just outside Cardiff (Pernath) The park has previously been used as a filming location! Take a picnic and a camera!

5) Ebbw Vales Owl sanctuary- I adore Owls! Located next to Festival park ( small shopping village) Free entry! You can see a range off different bird of prey!

Here are some other great places that are free (Parking charges my apply).

6) Margam Country Park

7) Roath Park Cardiff

8) Usk Castle & River Walk
