For Mental Health Awareness Week, we are venturing to Manchester, Newcastle and Cardiff to catch up with our size? Experts. They’ll be showing us around some of the best spots in the city to find some escapism.
We ventured to Cardiff to catch up with Mishak at the Cardiff size? store. From parks to castles and b-ball courts, Mishak showed us some of Cardiff’s best spots to switch off…
Located in the middle of the City, Bute Park is famous for its abundance of greenery and waters. This beautiful spot is just a short walk away from the bustle of the city, so if you ever fancy having a bit of escapism, this horticulture and wildlife hotspot is ideal.
In need of something a bit different? Well, you can indulge yourself in some Welsh history at the 2000-year-old Cardiff Castle. Teeming with rich history, this heritage spot has castle tours, gigs, and even a drive-in cinema – not very traditional, but we aren’t complaining.
City Hall Lawn
Another space in the heart of the city, Cardiff City Hall is an outstanding bit of architecture, and it boasts incredible landscaped gardens overlooking the National Museum. If you want a wide-open space and something a bit grander, this is the place for you.
Cardiff Bay/ Waterfront Park/ Wales Millennium Centre
Why not spend a bit of time looking over the serene Cardiff Bay; just a short walk from Waterfront Park and Wales Millennium Centre, this spot isn’t very chilled, but there are plenty of activities to get involved in for some escapism – get involved.
First opened in 1894, Roath Park is a historic green space with a scenic walk around its beloved lake. Located in the city centre, this is another spot that you can visit if you are after some greenery, with some nature added into the mix. This park is also home to a popular basketball court – whether you are with a group or on your own, bring a ball and switch off for a bit.
