Another Thursday and another Top 10!  This time I’m sharing my Top 10 Places to Visit.

  1. The beach.  Living where I do in South Wales I’m not too far away from some spectacular beaches and I think there is nothing better than beach walks any time of the year.
  2. Parks.  I love being outdoors and going to the park, seeing the different coloured leaves on the trees and keeping an eye out for different animals that I may spot.
  3. St Fagans.  I love visiting St Fagans, I try to go every few years and have a walk around.  I love that you can go into the buildings and have a look around and get a feel for how life was in years past.
  4. Cardiff City Centre.  There is so much to do in Cardiff…Independent shops, shopping arcades, a castle, museum, fab pubs…well worth a visit!
  5. Bath.  I love Bath, again, so much to do from independent shops to Roman Baths, a spa and lovely places to eat too.
  6. Museums.  There is something about visiting a museum that I really enjoy, not only do I learn things but the atmosphere has a really calming effect on me.  Always worth a visit when its cold or raining!
  7. Tate Modern.  I’ve been to the Tate twice, once to see a Damien Hirst exhibition and the other time to see the Shape of Light exhibition.  I have not really ventured around any of the galleries yet but I really want to go again.  Visiting art galleries can help with creative ideas and it’s always interesting to see the different types of mediums artists use.
  8. Book Shops.  Wherever I go I usually end up in a book shop somewhere.  There is something really lovely about spending time browsing in bookshops and I normally come away with a few to add to my collection!
  9. Markets.  I love markets.  There is such a selection of different items on show and available to purchase.  And some markets hold special events, like craft markets or food market days which are really worth checking out.
  10. Abbeys – Tintern Abbey and Llanthony Priory in particular.  I love heading to an abbey with my camera and a picnic in the summer months and having a leisurely walk around, taking in the architecture and atmosphere.
