New Walkers Welcome! This walk is especially designed for potential or new walkers to the Group who may prefer to begin with shorter easier walks, although EVERYONE is welcome.
Starting from the Wales Millenium Centre this walk will pass several iconic Cardiff landmarks including the Pierhead Building, the Norwegian Church, and the Senedd before crossing the barrage and walking up a short steep hill into Penarth. We will pause briefly at St Augustine’s church for spectacular views back across Cardiff Bay and City before continuing down to the Penarth seafront and Pavilion where we may stop for refreshments, before heading for home.
The walk will take place on good quality surfaces and pavement and is mostly flat with the exception of a short hill up to St Augustine’s Church and down to Penarth pier (reversed on the return journey).
This will be a moderate paced walk with plenty of opportunities to stop and admire the coastal views and take photographs.
At the end of the walk we will find a coffee shop or bar for some post-walk refreshments.
PLEASE NOTE: The meeting point for this walk is at the walk start point in Cardiff Bay; the walk leader will meet you there.
This walk takes place during the Cardiff International Food Festival in Cardiff Bay, so please be aware if seeking to park nearby. We will be able to visit the festival and food stalls after the walk.
Next to the silver water fountain outside the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
