Chapter is an arts centre in an old school which has films, exhibitions and a great bar/cafe with real ales, foreign ales and good food during the day and evening. Well worth the trip out from the city centre.
Market Road, Canton Cardiff CF5 1QE
Chapter is situated in Canton, behind Cowbridge Road East, between Llandaff Road and Market Road. It is easily accessible from the city centre with a car park at the rear of the building and by buses numbers 17, 18 + 31 every 5 minutes from Cardiff Central. Ring 029 20 304400 for more details.
A monthly market (held every first Sunday) which takes place either inside or outside the Milgi bar on City Road (an eclectric bar/bistro with video art, squashy sofas, chandeliers and a good line in cocktails and homemade pop).
It's a bit of a hotchpotch of jumble, young designers, live music, DJs, the odd random performance artist, maybe a BBQ, maybe some nice hot soup...
It's genuinely really great for hand printed tees and pumps, jewellery, second-hand books, vinyl, vintage-rummaging, people-watching, cake-eating, cocktail-drinking... And sometimes it happens at night too, which can be very, very good.

Bring this back as a great holiday souvenir or present. The tradition of carving and giving wooden lovespoons began hundreds of years ago in Wales when young men gave them to their sweethearts as tokens of affection. Different designs and sizes convey different messages: a cross means faith, a horseshoe symbolises luck, a knot signifies everlasting love, and so on.
This museum, with its collection of Welsh archaeology, arts and crafts, and surprisingly impressive collection of Impressionist paintings, is worth a visit if you’ve got a few days here. Entry is free.
