WIN a Gourmet Staycation in South Wales

In partnership withVisit Wales


A two-hour train ride from London, Cardiff – home to Dame
Shirley Bassey – is one of our favourite destinations for a
short-haul weekend escape.

A trip to the Welsh capital has edged its way to the top of our
staycation list, so we’ve teamed up with Visit Wales to send a SUITCASE reader and a
friend to Cardiff for a couple of days filled with good food and
plenty of hwyl – that’s fun in Welsh.

You’ll be staying at the contemporary-cool voco™ St
, set amid concrete piers, ship basins and
boardwalks overlooking the waterfront of Cardiff Bay. Standing out
from the crowd thanks to its dynamic style and glass-backed atrium
structure, you’ll be taking the capital in from a height – the
hotel’s Signature Suite King Bed comes with panoramic views – clad
in a fluffy robe.

Come morning, enjoy a moreish breakfast on the hotel before an
afternoon spent exploring Cardiff’s cultural offering. The Chapter
Arts Centre in hip Canton is a great place to start while The
National Museum Cardiff’s Photography exhibit (catch it before it
closes on 1 March 2020) – displaying works by notables including
August Sander, Bernd and Hilla Becher and Martin – will pique the
interest of snap-happy visitors.

When hunger strikes, we’ve another treat lined up for you. Not
just an English pursuit, the Welsh are also a dab hand at afternoon
tea and The Angel in Abergavenny serves up one of the
best in town. A member of the prestigious UK Tea Guilds (a title
afforded to only nine hotels outside London), sandwiches brim with
local fillings, while scrumptious homemade bakes and warm scones
round off proceedings with a hit of something sweet.

As night falls, take a stroll along the seafront before crossing
Cardiff Bay Barrage, a pedestrian walkway connecting the city to
the seaside town of Penarth. Here, you’ll be getting the
Michelin-starred treatment at BBC Great British Menu finalist
James Sommerin‘s eponymous restaurant.
Plump for one of the sensational tasting menus where butter-poached
lobster is followed by tender Welsh lamb cooked three ways, or his
signature pea ravioli.
