Warrior Women Events are usually held in venues in Cardiff. During the COVID lockdown, they moved online – meaning you can be anywhere in the world to join in. Regardless of whether they are online or offline, the inspirational events are designed to be thought-provoking, informative and inspiring.
Cardiff is my hometown, and I feel very passionately about its landmarks, history and culture. If you live or are from Cardiff, you would have driven past or visited Roath Park at some point. It is surrounded by huge Victorian houses and has always been an affluent part of the city, even if there are a few ‘dodgy’ streets nearby. Most people can say they have walked or jogged around the lake, or fed the birds – or in my case, chased by the birds. There have also been wedding proposals. It’s somewhere where you can watch your children or grandchildren play. You can hire a boat and float around the lake. Plus, the lighthouse, a memorial to the ill-fated Captain Scott, is one of the most Instagrammable locations in Cardiff.
Did you know that Wales’s only thermal spring is in Taffs Well? Neither did I, and I’ve lived in Cardiff all of my life! I have lived and worked nearby for a long time, and did not know of its existence. It was once a busy tourist hotspot, and now it is nearly forgotten. Can we get Taffs Well’s thermal spring back on the must-see map?
Sometimes afternoon tea can be uneventful, let’s face it, it’s just sandwiches and cake! So, what did I think about my afternoon tea in The Ivy Cardiff? The dining experience will definitely hit the savoury and sweet spots.
