>Wales Trip [Part 2]

Posted on: June 29, 2008


Previous post of Wales Trip [Part 1] is about Cardiff Bay. This time around Part 2 is about Cardiff city centre, which is the capital of Wales and a small tiny little island known as Barry Island.

Having our lunch at Queen Street before depart to Barry Island
Cardiff Railway Station, from here we took train to Barry Island
Inside the train..Almost alike our KTM but much better as not crowded…

Some info of Barry Island. Barry Island is a seaside resort, forming part of the town in South Wales. Barry’s stretch of coast has the world’s second highest tidal range, of 15 metres (49 ft).

After that, we went back to Cardiff City centre. Before heading back to our backpack loudge, there a few buildings you shouldn’t miss when visiting Wales.

1. Cardiff CastleCardiff may only have been a city for 100 years, but there has been a castle here for nearly 2000 years. Tours of the castle interior take place throughout the day, or visitors can just enjoy a stroll around the picturesque Castle gardens. The newly opened 6m pound Interpretation Centre will also present for the first time the story of the Castle and its 2000 years of history, offering visitors a unique opportunity to learn about the different phases of the Castle’s development from the Romans through to the modern day.

2. Millennium StadiumWhen the stadium isn’t hosting major sports matches or concerts you can take a tour of the 74,000 seater stadium. Walk down the player’s tunnel, try out the Queen’s seat in the Royal box and discover how they removed the curse from the away-team changing rooms.
