The Taff Trail provides a scenic and traffic free route into the city centre from the northern suburbs, or a pleasant trip out of the city in the other direction!

River Taff is a river in Wales flowing from its origin in the Northern part of Wales to the Southeast where it flows into the sea near Cardiff Bay. It is known for salmon and trout fishing.

Pleasant river experience travelling by boat from the castle to Cardiff bay with a recorded commentary explaining points of interest. Places of interest include the Norwiegian church, millennium point and the senate. A lot of the bay properties, restaurants especially, were closed.

Used the water bus to reach Cardiff Bay, which provided good views of the river. Some impressive looking apartments line much of it near the city centre, alongside some inviting looking bars.

If you get a chance take a trip on this river it is well worth the time and energy to do so. You can catch boats from either the Bay area or from the park next to the Cardiff Castle.

Hi Sheila, the Millennium Stadium is almost right next to Cardiff Central railway station to the west. You should see it as you come into Cardiff station and it is well sign-posted from the station.
