The Taff Trail

Cardiff Bay

Start: Roald Dahl Plass
End: Clarence Road Bridge
Distance: 0.51 miles (approx)

Starting at the Roald Dahl Plass (formerly the Oval Basin) the Taff Trail winds its way 55 miles north to Brecon. Cardiff Bay has undergone a huge restoration and modernisation programme over the past decade or so and is now a worthy waterfront development.

There's plenty to see and do in Cardiff Bay with numerous shops, restaurants and bars in addition to the Millennium Centre, nicknamed the 'armadillo' because of it's design.


We don't have any photos of Cardiff Bay at the moment.

Roald Dahl Plass

Formerly named the Oval Basin, this is the start or finish point of the Taff Trail and is located in Cardiff Bay, adjacent to the Wales Millennium Centre. It is named after the author, Roald Dahl, who is famed for children's books such as The Twits, James and the Giant Peach and Matilda.

The Oval Basin opened in April 2000 and was designed by William Pye, in conjunction with Nicholas Hare Architects. It was renamed in July 2002 and appears in Torchwood and Doctor Who, both of which are filmed in and around Cardiff.
