Restaurants & Shopping
As of 3 August, many restaurants have reopened and are available for guests to enjoy. We would recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment as due to safety protocols, restaurants are only able to accommodate a certain number of guests per lunch or dinner sitting. Our concierge team will be happy to make reservations for you based on your preference upon arrival. Shopping centres including Queens Arcade, situated in the vibrant city centre and St David’s Dewi Sant have now also reopened. It is compulsory to wear a face mask in all shops and shopping centres.
Trains coming in and out of Cardiff are now available to be booked, for the latest information please visit National Rail. Buses in the city are still running as normal, but you must wear a face mask. Located in the heart of the city centre, Park Plaza Cardiff is within walking distance to Cardiff Castle, where you can currently enjoy the open-air space of the Castle green, free of charge as well as popular shopping centres. Despite being known for its busy city centre, Cardiff has a number of areas not far away but that feel a million miles away from any city life. The Taff Trail stretches the length of the River Taff at 55 miles, starting in Cardiff Bay and finishing in Brecon, whilst passing some unmissable attractions and landmarks. The trail can be walked or cycled with nextbike locations dotted throughout the city centre.
