Afraid it may rain? Still loads to do!  Fishing and quad biking are better in the rain,   swim in an indoor pool or an outdoor reservoir  , visit an indoor tropical butterfly zoo, go into ancient roman mines or a deep coal mine or visit a world class museum. Or splash in woodland puddles and enjoy the scent of newly washed trees.   Try our  theatres, concerts and sporting events,  be tempted by farm shops or world class shopping in Cardiff.
