If you fancy a bit of retail therapy on your hen weekend, then Cardiff is the place to be! Head down to St David’s Mall to browse the shops with your girlfriends, or meander through the arcades, a Victorian style market full of quirky shops and independent boutiques (you could even find an outfit to wear out on your hen night!). To really feel like a local, why not pop down to Cardiff Central Market, an indoor covered market right in the heart of Cardiff, full of stalls selling fruit, vegetables, cakes, sweets and more! The cheapest place in Cardiff for a fry up (and heaven knows you may need one after the hen night!), and the best place to pick up some traditional Welsh cakes.
If you’re a fan of Bargain Hunt, or just like an activity with a difference, why not search for some hidden treasures at Jacobs Market, a hidden gem of a shop, with 4 floors of antiquities, just around the corner from Cardiff Central Station!
