The Get Lost in Cardiff Map started with a love of independents and a vision. Kirsty Patrick created the map with a team of freelancers and small business owners, to share the home-grown shops, eateries and galleries that give Cardiff character, and make up the real city. The first map, plotting 9 independents, was born in July 2016.
In December 2016, following lots of great feedback and interest from additional indies, the second map went to print. Map #2 has received funding from BID (Business Improvement District) and includes 24 city centre shops, eateries and galleries, creating an even bigger independent city trail for you to Get Lost in Cardiff.
You can collect your own copy of the map from one of our 24 featured independents, or from one of the following great destinations across Cardiff, Penarth, Barry and beyond.
