Hi, I’m Katie.

I’ve lived in Cardiff all my life and absolutely love it. I live in Radyr with my husband G, six-year-old son J and two-year-old daughter F. I trained and worked as a journalist but now work for a charity based near the city centre. 

My blog is about the things my family and I enjoy doing in our wonderful city, Cardiff.

Expect afternoon teas, fitness, family activities and the best places to eat and drink. Follow me on Twitter @CardiffGirlBlog for more reviews and RTs or my personal account is @Katie_Chappelle. If you want to contact me, Twitter is the best way, I rarely check comments on this page.

    Hi Cardiff Girl,
    Are you into running? Nike has just launched free Run Clubs all over the UK and there will be one in Cardiff soon. It’s a great way to see the city you love and get fit with friends at the same time!
    I can send you more details over email if you’re interested.
    Just let me know.

    Hi Cardiff Girl,
    Just recently found your blog and am really looking forward to discovering parts of the city I didn’t know about. One of things I like best about living in Cardiff is that you always seem to be discovering new things and places. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    Love Katie x

    Hey Cardiff Girl,

    my sister and I visited Cardiff for the first time this year in October, and we absolutely loved it. When preparing for the trip, I stumbled over your blog and was really happy to get a feeling for the Welsh capital by reading through your texts. So thanks for that :).
    If you are interested, here is how our 4 day trip went. We mainly stayed in Cardiff, but we took one day to visit the Brecon Beacons, which was marvelous:
