Cardiff Information

Cardiff is the largest city and the capital of Wales and is the 10th largest city in the UK in terms of population Cardiff is Wales's principle commercial centre and a base for sporting institutions, national culture & media, and hosts the National Assembly. Overall, Cardiff has over 1,000,000 inhabitants including the outlying areas that make up the South Wales Valley and Cardiff metropolitan areas. With over 18 million tourists a year the city is ranked as the world's sixth alternative tourist destination, according to National Geographic.

Cardiff is county town for the historic South Glamorgan County and a member of Eurocities, a network of Europe's largest cities. The urban area of Cardiff covers an area that is slightly bigger than the boundaries of the County. Towns such as Penarth, Dinas, and Powys are included in that area. Cardiff was a small town up until the start of the 19th century when its distinction as a principle port for transporting coal from this region vastly contributed to a meteoric rise in employment ultimately resulting in city status.

In 1955, Cardiff became the Welsh capital and has seen substantial development since 1990, particularly to the Cardiff Bay area. Renovations to the waterfront area include the Senedd Building, which houses the Welsh Assembly, the Wales Millennium Centre (an arts complex), the BBC Drama village, Cardiff's INTL Sports Village, along with the new district for business in the city centre.

Sport venues for the city includes the Millennium Stadium, home of Wales's national rugby team; SWALEC Stadium, home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club; Cardiff City Stadium, home of Cardiff City FC, Cardiff INTL Sports Stadium, home to Cardiff Amatuer Athletic Club; and the Cardiff Arms Park, home to Cardiff Blues & Cardiff Rugby FC. Cardiff was awarded the European City of Sports in 2009 & 2014. Millennium Stadium was the host of eleven football matches in the 2012 Olympics.
