Every opportunity I get, I try to discover new places to go and explore and today was no exception. The day was beautiful and so I was in pursuit of a location nearby Cardiff where I’d be able to go for a walk in the nature and of course capture a few landscape photos. After a bit of research, I came across Newport Wetlands: A beautiful wildlife reserve.
The site is only a 30 minute drive away from Cardiff Bay and it’s just gorgeous. It consists of reed-bed and freshwater lagoons, making it one of the largest birding sites in Wales! The reserve also offers good walking opportunities, as there are various walking pathways to explore. There is also a lighthouse on the sea wall. A visit to this place is worthwhile, as it is literally a wildlife escape at the edge of the city!
At the site there is a visitors centre where you can find information about the paths and the wildlife at the reserve. You can also pay there for the parking, which is £3 for the whole day. Finally, there are many kid’s activities that you can find at the centre! I had a really nice time strolling around and the views were definitely impressive. Therefore, I decided to write this post in order to share my experience with you! Hopefully I will convince you to pay it a visit. Below are few of the photos I took today:
Until next time…
