Things to do on a Rainy Day in South Wales

It’s that horrible, wet and windy time of year. However, South Wales has a lot to offer, even when it’s raining. There are plenty of fun things to do, cool places to see, and interesting attractions that are must-visits. Here you can discover our pick of the best things to do when it’s pouring down in South Wales.





Go Indoor Go Karting

Just because it’s raining, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time. So, forget moping around indoors and instead, get over the wet weather and do something that’s not weather dependant, such as indoor go karting!

Whip your way around the 400 metre track in a 200cc car alongside friends or family and experience non-stop fun. With hairpin turns and sweeping wide bends, this race tracking is a thrilling challenge for even the most experienced go karters! If you’re new to the racing track then fear not, you’ll soon be racing like the pros.

Book go karting at Cardiff’s TeamSport and you’ll be in for an adrenaline-fuelled day out.
