I just checked the poll results (thank you so much to everyone who's filled it in. You're all awesome) and it looks like about half of the peoplke who've responded have visited Cardiff for Torchwood.

I'm wondering, then, if people would be prepared to share memories of their trips. Even if I was there with you, I still want to know what it was like. There's some stuff come up in the recs post that I've never even heard of (and if you didn't go and recommend things to do, you definitely should). What was awesome, and what was rubbish? And what was the best thing ever?

Three times.

Ok, the first was actually a fairly long story, but I was passing through the UK very quickly, and I came in Sunday and left on Monday with my friend, a bit DW fan who tolerated my Torchwood obsession. We went to the shrine and the plas first thing and took at least a hundred pictures of everything.

The next day we did St. Fagan's and Cardiff Castle before leaving for London.

The second time was during my term abroad and I came for a weekend (Friday-Monday) and I did the National Museum Wales, Castell Coch, Caerphilly Castle, a morning at the shrine, Bute park and a lot of wandering.

The last time was with you - I came in for the day and we did the Doctor Who tour and hung out with the guide and the group until I had to catch the last bus back to London.

Everything was the best. No, really. I've always sort of let Cardiff happen without much of a plan (except the tour) so I was never late and I always had an enjoyable time.
