Cardiff Tourist Information

Cardiff Tourist Information

After beating competition from other prominent Welsh cities, Cardiff was crowned the capital of Wales on December 20th 1955. The city is fast deserving the title, by developing one of Europe’s finest maritime quarters. Cardiff is growing in reputation, population, size and status.

An ambitious regeneration of Cardiff Bay has come to fruition, and the Millennium Stadium is now firmly established as an excellent venue for sporting events and even the odd rock concert.

Today Cardiff has 20 hectares of beautiful parks and leisure gardens, some of which are within metres of the bustling central shopping area. The city centre is charming and cosmopolitan, displaying a harmonious blend of historic arcades and contemporary shopping malls, all offering an unrivalled shopping experience, while Cardiff Bay is a waterfront mecca for top-quality eating, drinking and the arts. The capital also boasts an array of stunning Victorian architecture: The Old Library in The Hayes – which was the centre for the City’s European Capital of Culture bid; the lavish domes and monumental white stone of the Civic Centre; rows of elegant terraced houses; and the ornamental towers of Cardiff Castle are the jewels in Cardiff’s crown.

The capital now offers a quality of life that rates among the best of any British city, and the population has grown rapidly, currently standing at 316,000 (2004).
