Tape – Bute Park Cardiff – August 2015

On the last weekend of the holidays we took a trip into Cardiff to see the giant spider web – Tape which was installed in Bute Park for the month of August.


The first installation of it’s kind in the UK Tape is the brainchild of Numen / For Use andΒ it’s aim is to connect people with nature. The structure is strung from the trees and made entirely of sticky tape. The ingenious part is that you can actually crawl inside it! It certainly does give you a different perspective on nature!

I found the concept utterly fascinating and as the project was only here for a limited time (and was free!) we had to check it out.

We queued for about an hour and we were allowed to crawl around the inside twice which took about 5 minutes. I couldn’t go in myself as my back was really painful that day but the hubby took the three kiddies in and they absolutely loved it! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sure the baby had much of a clue what was happening but my eight year old thought it was absolutely brilliant.

For me, I took a wonderful stroll around the beautiful Bute Park. I haven’t ever been to Bute Park really before and it is huge! So many beautiful things to see there, I’ll definitely be taking the kids there again.

We stopped for afternoon tea afterwards in Pettigrew Tea Rooms and it definitely lived up to the hype.


A truly fabulous day!

      I think it has finished now Leanne πŸ™ But of course Pettigrew is still there if that’s any consolation! It was yum!

    Woah! That looks so cool! An hour wait is a long time but with it bing limited edition it’s great that you can say you’ve done it (at least the children can!):) x

    What a beautiful setting. I love the concept of the tape but not sure if I would have crawled inside. The cake looked delicious, my favourite kind.

    Such a unique idea for a day out. Truly memorable. Any day finished with cake is a good day x

    I lived in England for seven years and never went to Wales. I can’t believe it. It looks like such a beautiful place. I will move back to England in the future and visiting Wales is very high on my to do list.
