From the 213 acres of Victoria Park to the pristine woodland of Coed Y Wenallt, nature touches Cardiff in beautiful but often pollen-heavy pockets. Summer in Cardiff sees the harshest peaks in pollen even away from the nature trails and grassy hills but there’s still plenty of ways to enjoy the Welsh capital.
Cardiff Bay’s cool coastal air means pollen levels are usually lower here even in peak allergy seasons. If you’re concerned about
hay fever symptoms, give the Taff Trail, parks, and areas surrounding Cardiff Castle a miss.
