Photos added from the recent Wales V Scotland game at Cardiff City’s ground in Wales.
The trip started with a taxi to the airport at 5am – definatly worth spending the extra money to get a taxi!
Easyjet plane down to Bristol, then Bus transfer to Train station and train Bristol to Cardiff. Book the transfer from Brstol Airport in advance via the First Rail website.
Stayed in the Park Inn Cardiff City Centre which was ideally placed for the main pub district on St Mary Street. Expensive but the cheapest we could find.
Friday we were able to get tickets to the Wales V Samoa Rugby at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium. Wales narrowly won 17 to 13. It could have gone the other way in the closing moments. The stadium is massive and shows what Scotland should have done to Hampden.
Saturday was the Wales V Scotland football match at Cardiff City’s new ground. 25,000 capacity but only 13,000 seats ocupied. Wales won 3-0 – the first goal on 13 minutes. The game led to Burley being sacked on the Monday. Cardiff City stadium shows what can be built if there’s room to build a brand new stadium. Tynecastle, Easter Road and Pitodrie take note.
Favourite pub of the trip would go to the Walkabout pub – 2 very large TV screens and a large dance floor.
Back Sunday afternoon by the same way we went.
Good trip if you forget about the 90 minutes of football in the middle.
