"What about me? I saw the Fall of Troy, World War V. I pushed boxes at the Boston Tea Party. Now I'm gonna die in a dungeon. In Cardiff! "-- Doctor Who , The Unquiet Dead (2005)
It's a disservice to the city of Cardiff that fans show up, visit the museum, and then leave Wales immediately. Unfortunately, we did much the same, though we had a very good time wandering through Mermaid Quay and the Cardiff Bay Waterfront, walking distance from the museum.
We had lunch at Terra Nova, which had a nice selection of gluten free options clearly marked on the main menu, including several desserts. I am very sorry I didn't get to try the chocolate orange brownie, but my risotto was really good and I ate too much to even consider dessert.

We had a lot of fun walking around the area, seeing Roald Dahl Plass (and looking for the secret entrance to Torchwood). If I had to do it again, I think I would take one of the boat tours being offered from the pier. It looked like a lot of fun.
