Stuff Report – 26 June 2012

I took the train into Cardiff today. First point of call was the National Museum Cardiff[1], which has had its art gallery section enlarged and enhanced since my last visit  a few years ago. Saw some nice things, some odd things, and some errr, oookkaaayyyy things in the Contemporary Art section.

After a good wander round there, I passed the City Hall and Law Courts, and took a stroll in Bute Park, where I took some pictures of the castle from its less often seen side. After that, the rain came back, so I went into the moderately new Cardiff Story exhibition in the old library building, which was nicely interesting.

That left time for a bit of lunch in the Plan Cafe, which I generally like to visit when I’m in Cardiff. I had the inevitable double espresso (excellent) and a brie and cranberry baguette (very tasty, lovely bit of creamy brie). After that, I decided that I didn’t want to wander around in the drizzle any more, and got the next train back to Pencoed.

Here’s a picture of Cardiff Castle:

This is the rear of the castle, seen from Bute Park, with none of the fancy Victorian bonkersness[2] in view.

[1] Seems to have changed its name again
[2] What do you mean that’s not a word?
