Cardiff centre is kind of small, the castle right there where you wouldn't expect it to be, I imagine it is sort of swamped, like a film set.
I am an hour from Cardiff and London along the M4 and near Fairford, there have been a lot of C5's and large aircraft flying around, as well as army helicopters, including those flying super low. Obama is flying there tomorrow, staying Wednesday and Thursday night.

7 warships in Cardiff Bay! Now that's something you don't see every day... If it wasn't such a nightmare getting in and out of the city I'd go down to have a look.
Just thinking, with an extra 10,000 police officers being brought in from other forces across the UK, could something happen elsewhere while all eyes are on Wales?
But one pupil, Ben Thornton, said he wasn't sure if the President would return to the country, despite the schoolboy's best efforts to encourage him to.

A South Wales taxi driver has been left red-faced after taking Barack Obama to CASTLE BINGO instead of CARDIFF CASTLE.
He told WalesOnCraic:
“I’d had a long day and it was the last fare of the day for me. Round here, the ‘Castle’, as in Castle Bingo, is the only place to be on a Wednesday night in Newport. So I heads to the Celtic Manor and this dude gets in dressed up like he’s going to some posh place. I tells him that he might be a bit overdressed as they don’t do Cashpots on Wednesday nights but he laughed it off. He was nice enough and left me a half decent tip.”
