It often seems that most dads are just along for the ride when it comes to day to day family life, loyally trudging along to whatever family activity or event is on the calendar that day.
On Father’s Day, it’s their chance to do what they love most, and what better way to celebrate Father’s Day in Cardiff than joining in with their favourite past time.
We’ve thought of a few activities and events that we know most dads enjoy and found the best places to do them this Father’s Day in Cardiff.
If Dad’s A Keen Angler
For the dads whose idea of sitting lake or riverside just waiting for a bite is heaven, Cardiff is home to some of the best fishing spots in the land.
Give him some company this Father’s Day in Cardiff and settle down for a day of fishing on the beautiful Bristol Channel or take a pew on the banks of Canada Lodge lake.
It might be your idea of hell but as long as Dad’s happy that’s all that matters.
If Dad’s A Golfer
A little way outside the city lies a lost land, a world where the dinosaurs still roam, and you can have a lot of fun with your golf-mad Dads on Father’s Day.
The 18-hole crazy golf course is dotted with dinosaur obstacles and challenges and prices per adult golfer are just £7 a round.
It may not play to dad’s particular golfing skill set but you can bet you’ll have a laugh, unless of course, you beat him.
If Dad Enjoys A Well Pulled Pint
When it comes to finding a good pint in Cardiff, there are some good old-fashioned establishments that can deliver.
Some of the oldest pubs in Cardiff are still the best, and if dad enjoys nothing more than a refreshing well-pulled pint, pop into the city centre and share in his favourite pastime.
There are plenty of places serving the quality goods, including Tiny Rebel among them who are an award-winning Welsh brewery based in Cardiff.
Dad will be spoiled for choice with plenty of IPA’s, bitters and stouts to choose from. Plus, he can wrap his lips around one of the most delicious burgers in Cardiff whilst enjoying his perfect pint.
If Dad Loves to Laugh
Who doesn’t love a good belly laugh now and again?
Spend Father’s Day in Cardiff, or the day before, trying to tickle your dads’ funny bone with a superb stand-up comedy act at The Glee Club.
There will be four stand-up superstars taking to the stage, doing their best to make your sides split.
Or why not grab tickets to Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Musical and see the much-loved comedy sketch brought to life in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, complete with sing-along-songs and choreography.
Enjoy Father’s Day in Cardiff this year, laughing your socks off with dear old dad.
If Dad Loves Live Music
You couldn’t have picked a better city to celebrate Father’s Day in if your dad loves live music.
There are so many amazing places you can listen to the latest up and coming Cardiff acts, as well as huge stadium venues and arenas where some of the world’s biggest stars perform.
This Father’s Day weekend, none other than Sir Elton John will be gracing the stages of Cardiff City Stadium with his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
This will be the very last time the music icon will be performing live, ever! Talk about a memorable Father’s Day Present.
If Dad Likes A Pie or Two
Is the answer to the question “Who ate all the pies” usually “dad” in your house?
If so and his favourite meal involves a pastry wrapped baked delicacy, head on over to Pieminister in Cardiff this Father’s Day and treat him to their specially made ‘’Fathership’ pie.
His choice of pie will be smothered in cheese, mash, gravy and peas all topped off with a sprinkling of crispy onions and a free pint of Freedom Ale to wash it down.
It doesn’t get much better than this for all those pie loving pappas out there.
If Dad’s A Bit Of A History Buff
Take a trip back in time to partake in some medieval madness at Cardiff Castle, and bring your history loving dad along for the ride.
This Father’s Day in Cardiff, The Knights of Royal England will be performing impressive jousting displays, there’ll even be a dragon procession and ancient displays of combat and skill.
