Cardiff Bay Trail

The circular trail for cyclists and walkers is 10km (6.2 miles) long. It runs around the Bay and across to the seaside town of Penarth via Pont Y Werin, a 140m bridge providing a link for pedestrians and cyclists between Penarth and the International Sports Village.

Along the trail, you can enjoy Cardiff’s rich heritage, see historic landmarks, such as the Norwegian Church, alongside iconic buildings like the world renowned Wales Millennium Centre and the Senedd, the Welsh Assembly’s building. The vibrant waterfront cafés, bars and restaurants give the Bay a special, unique appeal.
