"Cardiff on a Rugby Day" Cardiff by pattypoo

Cardiff Travel Guide: 1,053 reviews and 3,077 photos

It was Saturday 24 May 2008 and I made the mistake of going into Cardiff to have my hair done, For all those who have never been to Cardiff on a Match day take my word for it, its a nightmare in the bestest sense.
The streets are full of entertainment, laughter, and people carrying their flags, but beware you will not find a car parking space around.
Wales has the most loyal supporters of Rugby in the world and to see everyone out enjoying themselves was just fun, I usually dont do Cardiff on a Match day but I was so glad i never missed it on this occasion.
Cardiff has so much to offer visitors with good shops,good food and good Welsh people, so come to Cardiff and enjoy.

Street entertainer

How this fella stood still in the heat of the day Is beyond me. he kept his cool and remained there for hours moving slightly now and then to shock the unexpected person. He even remained still with the rugby men getting in on his space poor guy...

    Roath Park looks ideal for a picnic and a boat-ride. Nice pictures.

    Pillars and Plymouth Arms are great by me. So - is it Munster and Cardiff in the Heiners final????
