Blwyddyn Newydd Dda; or Happy New Year.

There are so many new things to do in the capital in 2019 we thought it best to put together a handy guide to make sure you don’t miss out on anything.

We’ve put together the ultimate bucket list for 2019 including eating challenges, mammoth milkshakes and a marathon to make sure you stick to that New Year’s resolution.
