    Once known as Tiger Bay, today Cardiff Place is a pleasant pedestrian friendly area. There are trips to be had [lasting 40 minutes] around the bay; there are cafes and restaurants, unusual architecture, old buildings and pleasant views of the bay and across to Penarth.
    It is a pleasant place to spend a couple of hours, sit and have a meal or laze on the grass or benches.

    Take a trip to Cardiff Bay!

    This area is infant in its year but very cosmopolitan with a down to earth flavour. There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants for you to sample different cuisines.

    You can also take the Bay tour boat which stops off at Penarth Marina and The Milennuim Stadium, or just stay on for a round trip! this is great fun and gives you a good view of the surrounding area.

    Check out the Norweigan Church and the Oval Basin!

    Head down to cardiff Bay if you've an hour or two, or even half a day.

    It has been facisnating to see the transformation of the area over the last few years. Each time we go down there is more stuff opened up and its becoming quite a vibrant area to hang out, eat, visit.

    As well as plent of places to visit - Techniquest, Visitor Centre, Norwegion Church etc, there are also plenty of places to eat.

    They have built a couple of new piers which house specialist ice cream parlour and restaurant.

    [For more photos see my Cardiff Bay Travelogue].

    The Pierhead building

    Cardiff Bay is the name now used for the dock area that was known as Tiger Bay.

    This brick and terracotta building facing the bay was opened in 1897 as the headquarters of the Cardiff Railway Company (formerly the Bute Docks Company).

    A new life ahead.

    A wonderful bronze of an immigrant couple symbolising the arrival of many to Tiger Bay- hoping to build a better future on UK shores.
