Welcome to Cardiff. I have lived in this city for over 40 years. I hope that I can help you learn about our City.
There is plenty for the visitor to see and do...and Hey ! it dos'ent ALWAYS rain here in Wales.
Cardiff is located on the banks of the River Taff, is the capital and largest city (320,000+ inhabitants) of Wales. It's a busy commercial, maritime and university city.
The castle is located in the city centre within the site used by both the Romans and the Normans for defensive purposes. The 12-sided Norman keep still sits on top of a small hill today, providing views over Cardiff's Civic Centre,.
Cathays Park, part of the Centre, has gardens, trees and green spaces. The City Hall (look for the dragon on the domed rooftop), Law Courts and Welsh National War Memorial are in the park, but it's the National Museum and Gallery that is of most interest to visit. It tells the story of the evolution of Wales from the land's beginning and houses a large collection of 18th century porcelain. There are art galleries of European work, including Impressionist paintings and sculpture.
