There's a lot to do and see there, isn't there? What was your favourite thing you did?

I've just posted all the stuff I did (or at least what I can remember doing, I'll check with my parents later that I didn't forget anything) in the other post. There wasn't really anything I didn't enjoy, I loved the city so much that I'm considering applying for uni there. Torchwood Tower and the Doctor Who exhibitions were probably my favourites relating to Torchwood in Cardiff, outside of Cardiff would be Barry Island and Penarth, again relating to Torchwood. Cardiff castle was a lot of fun too.

I've just seen the list. You did a lot of stuff I've not seen before. I've never even heard of the gardens, do you remember where they are?

They're not too far out of Cardiff in Wenove, about a 20 minute drive outside of the city centre according to google maps. Take the A4161 then the A48 then come off at St Lythans Road. Google maps will give you more precise directions.Looking at their website, the nearest bus stop is 20 minutes away. The outside of the House and the gardens were used for Something Borrowed and several other Doctor Who/SJA stories.

Cool! Thanks for this. I wondered where they filmed Something Borrowed.
