Cardiff is the capital city of Wales. On the south coast of Wales, where the River Taff meets the Severn Estuary, the city offers a vibrant range of unique attractions, entertainment and ample shopping all within walking distance. The innovative architecture sits alongside historic buildings. The revitalised waterfront at Cardiff Bay includes the Wales Millennium Centre complex, home of the national opera, orchestra, theatre and dance companies. Architect Richard Rogers’ modern Senedd building here houses the Welsh National Assembly.
