What are you doing this Father’s Day in Cardiff? If you’re still umm-ing and aah-ing, let us to help you out!
Sunday 18th June isn’t just a Sunday – it’s time to celebrate dad, meaning you need Father’s Day ideas for fun activities and days out in Cardiff that would be great to treat your old man to.
If your dad’s a trivia genius (and aren’t they all?) then the regular Porter’s Sunday Quiz is for you. Or for comedy fans, Glee Club Cardiff has its doors open, with Saturday night and Sunday night comedy!
Treat dad to something special – we’re hosting Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea at The Pantry in Cornerstone from 15th – 22nd June. All the delectable treats of your regular High Tea, with Punk IPA to wash it down. Suits you, sir! Book your place now.
Looking for something a little more exclusive? Petrol-heads rejoice – Italian Passion for Speed is coming to Cardiff Bay! If singing’s your thing, Sing for Water Cardiff, one of many nationwide events from WaterAid UK, could be the ticket. You can sing water-themed songs to your heart’s content in Cardiff Bay on Sunday 18th June.
If your dad’s still singing Goldie Lookin’ Chain (rapping hand actions included) then get nostalgic with the Father’s Day Rave at Tramshed, with Rhys and Eggsy on the decks. It’s family friendly all the way down to toddlers.

For the sportier gentleman, tours of the Principality Stadium are perfect! Why not get exclusive access to the inner workings of one of Cardiff’s brightest landmarks and see it as he’s never seen it before?
Actual sports activities are also encouraged – this brand new ‘Sightrunning’ tour of Cardiff is a fun and fit way to see our beautiful city. And, if it’s thrills and spills you’re after, there’s white water rafting, family rafting, kayaking and more at Cardiff International White Water.
Go to space
Space out at Techniquest in one of our more exploratory Father’s Day ideas – with their Lights in the Sky event, you can become budding astronomers and learn more about our night sky. For a family-focused event, step into the shoes of Tim Peake in Destination Space, a show with fun problem-solving for aspiring astronauts.
Feeling cultural? Cardiff Museum is hosting free guided tours showing the highlights of their science galleries.

Hit the shops
If your dad’s a snappy dresser, head straight to The Brogue Trader in the Morgan Quarter for fine leather goods and the snazziest of shoes.
In Cardiff Central Market, you’ll find Hatts Emporium, with vintage menswear, antiques, collectables and desirables – perfect for nostalgic browsing.
Whatever you choose to do this Father’s Day in Cardiff, give him a wonderful day to say thanks for everything!
