Food Scene
Great tasting breakfast and lunch, real teas in pots, with a timer provided so they brew just so! (or so I'm told) I can personally vouch for the coffee! This at the end of the lane opposite ours. https://waterlootea.com/

Eclectic decor and a wide range of food including all day breakfasts. The service can be a little slow but it's a vibrant environment right in the centre of town. A stone's throw from ours. https://thelounges.co.uk/ocho/

Best pizza in town (and Penarth has several pizzerias)! Really friendly service and a range of authentic tasting Italian dishes. Again, this is just down the lane, over the road from ours. http://tonyspizza.co.uk/

I've never been but I hear it's lovely. Certainly, its position and exterior in the Italian Gardens overlooking the sea makes it look very inviting! http://www.thefigtreepenarth.co.uk/

Sorted! This, in my humble opinion, is THE best veggie eatery in town! Just inside Cardiff, near the banks of the Taff, and a short walk from Central station and the city itself, is this extraordinarily welcoming place to eat. The menu is vast and the food is delicious. I have taken many a carnivore there and not a one of them has said anything but, "Wow, amazing!" (a good 'amazing' by the way) The only drawback is that it's not always easy to park outside but I tell you, it is worth any small bother that might cause. It is also, as I said, easily accessible by train and by bus and a short cycle.http://www.vegetarianfoodstudio.com/

Great range of fresh bakes; sweet, savoury. Good range of vegan food. Nearby is a great Coffee#1, good greengrocer, deli, bike shop and Llandaff Fields to walk over to Llandaff Cathedral. http://www.hotpantry.co.uk/

This shop has one of the best and largest range of interesting, good quality fruit, veg and a range of ambient deli foods you could hope for! Yet, it's a hop, skip and less than a jump away from ours in Windsor Arcade. The rest of the arcade is also worth a look, proper Victorian. http://penarthfruitveg.co.uk/

A treasure of a bookshop. A selection of books broad enough to detain you for some time. Plenty of local authors and books of interest to help you realise the possibilities and history of our principality. Quick in store ordering, and free coffee too! http://www.griffinbooks.co.uk/

Early on Saturday and Sunday morning there's a boot sale here. Around the outside of that you will find units that sell antiques and collectables. Sometimes it's better than others but it's free! http://cardifflocalguide.co.uk/car-boot-sale-bessemer-road/

This Victorian covered market is a must! It has it all, haberdashery, old vinyl, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers (quite possibly). Most importantly, you ca buy laverbread here, in Ashton's. It also has Clancy's for fantastic vegan food.

This is the best museum (as opposed to Art gallery) that I have ever been to. The buildings have been brought brick, stone or timber piece by piece from all over Wales to create a unique time travel experience. This is time travel without technology but the sights, sounds and smells of life at different periods for different classes of Welsh people. A walk around Wales - from Celtic times to the present day St Fagans is one of Europe's leading open-air museums and Wales's most popular heritage attraction and admission is free! https://museum.wales/stfagans/

Great shops (especially The Art Shop (http://artshopandgallery.co.uk/), specialist and local produce markets (check website), places to eat, walk and places to climb too! The castle is fantastic as you can get right up close. Apart from the Art Shop and flea markets, I love the town's charity shops, they rival Penarth's if I'm honest!

The dinosaurs are great, and some of them move too! However, the museum boasts one of the largest Impressionist and Post Impressionist collections in the UK. This is thanks to the generosity of the Davies sisters, who left 260 works fo Art to the museum. These include three of Monet's waterlilies paintings, Van Gogh's Rain at Auvers, Renoir's famous Blue Lady, La Parisienne, Monet's Rouen Cathedral, Rodin's The Kiss and other works by Manet and Pissarro. The website will tell you about what's happening right now and how to book for special events and exhibitions.
