Capital of Wales
Let us introduce you to Cardiff – capital city and gateway to Wales.
Cardiff is a secret just waiting to be discovered. It’s modern and lively city, with some of the friendliest people you’ll find – or so our visitors tell us!
Cardiff is a city of contrasts, where innovative 21st century architecture sits alongside a fairytale castle, our grand civic centre, and an outstanding shopping centre.
Cardiff Bay, once known as Shirley Bassey’s ‘Tiger Bay’, is now one of Europe’s most exciting and stylish waterfront developments, and where there’s always something going on.
The capital is also the perfect starting point to explore the best that Wales has to offer, including award-winning visitor experiences, castles, gardens, the rugged heritage coast and spectacular scenery. And golfers are in for a treat, with the Celtic Manor Resort, the 2010 Ryder Cup venue, just 19 miles from the Port of Cardiff, and other championship courses less than an hour away.
