They say our future lies in the past… but it doesn’t matter what you believe, you shouldn’t overlook the National Museum Cardiff.

Situated in the heart of Cardiff’s elegant civic centre, it houses Wales’s national art, geology and natural history collections as well as major touring and temporary exhibitions. The art collection at National Museum Cardiff is one of Europe’s finest.

Who says golf has to be an outdoors sport?

Treetop Adventure Golf is located on level 3 in St David’s Shopping Centre in the heart of Cardiff, and best of all, you get the jungle experience without the rain.

Visit their website for more details here.

4. Stay dry and go shopping

Who needs an excuse to go shopping? Well, if you do, there is no better time to head indoors. There are plenty of places in South Wales to shop and drop, with St David’s 2 one of our personal favourites. Park underground and come straight up into the shopping centre, without getting a drop on you.
