Things to do with the family in Cardiff – Family Footsteps Fun Day

Things to do with the family in Cardiff – Family Footsteps Fun Day

Future Inn Cardiff are really excited to announce that we will be the final stop of the Family Footsteps walking event, organised by Cancer Research Wales. It is taking place on Sunday 13th October 2019 in Cardiff Bay.

Your Future Inn Cardiff is bright with Family Footsteps

On the day, you and your family will meet at Techniquest. At 10.30am you will start to walk the 6km route around Cardiff Bay, mapped out and guided by JT Expeditions and sponsored by Western Power Distribution. The event is for all the family and is pushchair, wheelchair and dog-friendly.

As well as getting your step count in for the day, you will see some of The Bay’s most iconic buildings such as the Wales Millennium Centre, The Pierhead, The Norwegian Church and The Senedd. It will also be fun to spot ducks, swans and Roald Dahl’s enormous crocodile. Just be careful with your snacks, the sassy seagulls like to eat them too. You may even see speedboats, yachts and there is also a shipwreck buried in the sand.

Along the route, there will be a magician, face painters and a balloon artist. Our friends at Costco will also have a refreshment stand so you can rehydrate and grab a quick snack before completing the walk.

When you see Future Inn Cardiff, you know the finish line is in sight. We are the last stop on the route, and when you get here, you can enjoy freshly brewed tea or coffee, or soft drinks in Thomas Bar & Restaurant. We may even throw in a Welsh cake or two.

Family treat at the finish line

As you are expected back at lunchtime, why not treat the family to a homemade Sunday Roast? With crispy roast potatoes, giant Yorkshire puddings and a rich gravy, it would be rude not too. For three courses it is £15.95 per person and under 5’s eat for free. Plus, with your Family Footsteps t-shirts, you get a further 10% off.

Bookings can be made on 02920 487111, or online here:
