A city’s independents are the designer makers and gallery curators, to coffee shop creators and one off boutiques. Are you a curious visitor ready to uncover Cardiff’s character, buy local gifts or treats and support home grown business? Maybe you’re a local whose routine needs rejuvenating to include new on-your-doorstep gems?
The ‘Get Lost in Cardiff’ map is a curated insider’s guide to the best places to shop, eat and experience. It is the vision of Kirsty Patrick, who created the map with a team of hands-on Cardiff freelancers and small business owners. The team share beliefs in the power of independents, collaboration, making things happen, and shopping local. The first map included 9 great independent businesses, and we’re delighted the second has expanded to include way more.
Shop in beautiful Victorian arcades. Savour a coffee stop or lunch that uses local produce. Immerse yourself in art. Wander around wonderful Bute Park. Marvel at the National Museum. Explore the Castle. Take home tales and gifts from the real city. Get lost in Cardiff.
The Get Lost in Cardiff team invite you to create your own adventures and share them with us. We’d love to see how you’ve been inspired! Use hashtag #getlostincardiff with Instagram and Twitter @getlostincardiff.
