  • We spent a pleasant half hour here, but that was about as long as you could stretch it out for. We're really into boats and the workshop was really interesting but I'm not sure it would hold the atten...  more »
  • The World of Boats is located close to the Cardiff Bay Barrage and next to the Doctor Who Experience. The collection of boats is interresting, well presented, but quite small for the money they charge...  more »

  • There are many places of interest in Cardiff Bay including the Doctor Who exhibition as many of the hit TV series was filmed here. The bay has a number quality bars and restaurants with direct rail links to the city centre. The Welsh Assembly building is across the open air theatre and the barrage on the river has created an interesting boat ride around the bay or over to the Penarth Marina.
  • Beautiful port, very nice place surrounded with cafe and other eateries, parking is also close by the port for a short stay.
  • Great place to be! Lots of restaurants and bars if your looking for an evening of entertainment then be sure to check out the millennium centre for showings of all quality theatre productions, there is a great walk around the bay that will take you around 1 hour that incorporates captains Scott historical trip to the Antarctic and the famous Barrage that stops Cardiff from flooding!
  • Fascinating place to stroll around lot's of cafe's and restraunts to visit and enjoy. There are fantastic views to be had from most of them across the bay. We also walked around the bay, which took 4 hrs. Fantastic views from around the bay.
  • A great area to walk around, take photos and take in the sights, although usually cold and windy! There are some great buildings and really interesting architecture here. It's a really new and interesting part of Cardiff
