Big little city, capital of Wales. I was born Welsh, my father was Welsh, and as I had never been to Cardiff, it was on my list of things 'to do before I get past it'!! I took advantage of Arriva Trains Wales offer for the over 55s (Club 55) £15 return journeys anywhere on their Network £13 ( with Senior Railcard) offer runs until 9th April (Rugby internationals excepted) and allows period returns.
