Worth a separate post to Doctor Who as it is some where I have fallen head over heels for and could spend hours and hours walking around. At one time it was one of the most multicultural areas of Britain and the first million pound cheque was written at the coal exchange. The grand old buildings such as the coal exchange and old terraced streets stand surrounded by shiny glass and chrome and it feels like there is a bit of spirit and vitality to the place. Definitely somewhere to spend more time (when it isn’t raining).
Views over the bay.
The Norwegian church where Roald Dahl was baptised.Peace statue.
The Senedd.Millennium Building.The entrance to Torchwood 🙂
Then opposite the Millennium Building there was a Beach Festival with sand, deckchairs, tropical bars and rides.
Sam had a go at zorbing (there was a lot of crawling 🙂 )
The fun house
To see Sam going on rides and activities is still a surprise, he wouldn’t do a playground slide a year ago, but a good one. They both had a go at shooting sweets.
By then the rain was heavy so we retreated to the city centre shopping malls for coffee, Lego store and Hamleys and a long look and a lot of books from Oxfam.
