I visited Cardiff about a month before Children of Earth aired. My grandparents offered to take me with them to Scotland, and on a whim I asked if we could go to Cardiff first. Because my grandmother is both indulgent and rich, she said yes. My motivation for going was entirely because of Torchwood and Doctor Who, and getting to visit the plass and the Millennium Centre and the DW museum were definitely the highlights of the trip for me - though we also did other touristy things; Cardiff Castle and an art museum, shopping and eating at lots of cafes and such, which was also great fun.

Not sure if/when I'll get to go back, but I think I'll always have a nostalgic soft spot for the city.

(ETA: Meant to say, I'm from the States so getting across the pond in general is kind of a Big Deal for me!)

Good timing to visit it, and sounds like you had a great time. I hope you get to come back.
