Visit Cardiff Bay and discover an exciting community on the water. Cardiff Bay can be found in the south end of the city and, thanks to an ambitious regeneration project, is one of the most vibrant parts of the city.
Today, the dockland district at Cardiff Bay is home to an international community and a diverse range of shops, restaurants and attractions that include the Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff International Sports Village.
History of Cardiff Bay
While today Cardiff is the largest city in Wales and the country's capital, the city's origins are more humble. With the Industrial Revolution, Cardiff transformed from a small town into a bustling city and from local docks at Cardiff Bay into a busy port with ships from all over the world.
Eventually as coal exports declined, the bay area fell into disrepair. It was not until 1987 that the city began an extensive project to rejuvenate Cardiff Bay and to transform it into the cultural hub it is known as today.
