We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

March 2023. Direction: Pontprennau to Cardiff.

A functional route through the suburbs of Cardiff, from the newer estates around Pontrprennau, through the older establisheed areas such as Llanedyrn and Penylan, on through the city areas like Roath and finally the centre itself. A good cross-section of Cardiff. The best section for me was the walk down Pentwyn Drive, with the path away from, but parallel to the main road and passing through some greenery and trees.

I found this a really interesting cross-section through Cardiff, going through suburbia, estates and inner-city housing. I loved the massive heron mural on Plasnewydd Road and all the international restaurants when leaving Cardiff's city centre.

The route could have been drawn a little better where it starts in Pontprennau, but I'm sure you'll manage it!.

Very easy terrain mostly through housing estates and alongside roads. Quiet and safe.

A pleasant and easy walk through residential areas between the city centre and outskirts to the east. Alwyas pavements when at the side of the road. a perfectly good route.
