Sights to see
There are plenty of things to see and do when you visit Cardiff Bay – why not take a boat ride across the bay to Penarth to see the impressive barrage? There you can watch the 40m-long locks in action as boats sail in and out of the bay. There’s also a small exhibition dedicated to Scott of the Antarctic, who set sail from Cardiff on his ill-fated voyage to the South Pole. Other sights to see include the Norwegian Church that was brought to Cardiff from Norway during the Industrial Revolution for the Norwegian seamen who worked in the Docks, and the glass and slate Senedd building, which is where the National Assembly of Wales meets – go inside and watch the debating chamber in action. If you’re looking for things to do at night, head to the Wales Millennium Centre. The arts centre plays host to a changing programme of concerts, operas, musicals and ballets.
