Take a Walk in the Park
Cardiff is famed for having some of Great Britain’s most stunning parks. It also has the greenest space per square mile in the UK.
Take in the beauty of the natural surroundings as you and your loved one walk hand-in-hand around the beautiful, Grade I listed Bute Park.
Bask in and enjoy the stunning Sophia Gardens or simply meander along with the river that runs through it.
Treasure your time spent walking around Bute Park this Valentine’s Day.
Enjoy a Boat Ride on the Lake
There was a time when the most romantic thing to do in Cardiff involved a gentleman taking his partner out on the lake for a leisurely boat ride.
Today couples can enjoy each other’s company in a row or peddle boat while navigating the lake at Roath Park.
For the inexperienced rowers, this pastime adventure could prove hilarious as well as an utterly romantic experience for Valentine’s Day.
As Kenneth Graham once said: “there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” We couldn’t agree more.
Visit Penarth Pier Pavilion
One of Cardiff’s oldest landmarks, Penarth Pavilion, is the ideal place to enjoy a romantic ramble.
This picturesque location was once a hub of social activity in the Victorian era, where people would come to enjoy seaside trips, concerts and balls.
Today, pleasure steamers dock at the pontoon and visitors can enjoy a movie at the ancient intimate cinema, a meal with a spectacular view over the Bristol Channel or simply explore a noted piece of the past.
Admire the Rooftop Gardens of Cardiff Castle
Once home to the exuberant Marquess of Bute, Cardiff Castle and its interior are a fine example of the level of wealth and affluence that was once brought into the city by the coal trade.
Inside Cardiff Castle, visitors who are passionate about history and each other can admire the finery of the Marquess’ extravagant tastes.
A particularly romantic part of the castle can be found on the rooftop where the Maruqess created his very own private paradise inspired by exotic lands.
The garden is ornate and elegant, stunning and staggering and therefore ideal for a romantic, one of a kind Valentine’s Day out in Cardiff.
Valentine’s Wine and Dine at Exchange Hotel
The traditional way to your loved one’s heart is to treat them to a fine meal in a luxury establishment.
At The Exchange Hotel, our Valentine’s Wine and Dine offer invites couples to experience the beauty of the hotel while also enjoying numerous dishes.
A flavoursome, six-course feast has been lovingly crafted so many happy couples can enjoy a long and relaxing meal together, complete with a glass of bubbly.
Dine in style this Valentine’s Day at The Exchange Hotel.
Take a Trip to the Theatre
Cardiff is full of theatres that have jam-packed calendars of amazing stage performances and live music to choose from.
One of the most romantic things to do in Cardiff this Valentine’s Day is to book a trip to the theatre and watch a show from the comfort of the back row.
Valentines Afternoon Tea at The Exchange Hotel
Sometimes it’s the little things that go a long way, and, at The Exchange Hotel’s Valentine’s Afternoon tea, you will certainly find plenty of tasty little things.
Tiny cakes, pastries and sandwiches will be elegantly displayed in the gorgeous surroundings of The Exchange Hotel.
Our Valentine’s Afternoon Tea will also be served with a glass of bubbly so happy couples can toast their love in style.
Watch a Cardiff Bay Sunset
There isn’t anything more wonderful than watching the sun go down at the end of a long and lovely Valentine’s Day in Cardiff Bay.
Settling down to watch a sunset over the gently lapping waters is one of the most romantic things to do in Cardiff together and, better still, it doesn’t cost a thing.
Simply wrap up warm, pick a spot and enjoy the view.
Devour a Delicious Dessert
Coco Gelato has an amazing array of delicious desserts. So, why not choose one of their sumptuous sundaes or superb shakes, grab a spoon each, and get stuck in.
There isn’t anything more romantic than staring into your partners eyes as you both share a delectable dessert. And, we may be biased but, the name of Cocos’ Sundae menu: “Signature Sundaes,” has a nice ring to it.
Coco Gelato is the ultimate place to be for dessert lovers this Valentine’s Day.
