Cardiff

Cardiff is the capital, largest and core city of Wales. Located on the south coast of the country it is administered as a unitary authority within the historic county of Glamorgan. It was a small town until the early nineteenth century and came to prominence as a major port for the transport of coal following the arrival of industry in the region.

It eventually grew to become the largest city in Wales and serves as a major centre of culture, sport and history in the United Kingdom. Cardiff was made a city in 1905, proclaimed capital of Wales in 1955.  Cardiff is bordered to the west by the rural district known as the Vale of Glamorgan, to the east by the city of Newport, to the north by the South Wales Valleys and to the south by the Bristol Channel. The River Taff winds through the centre of the city and together with the River Ely flows into the freshwater lake of Cardiff Bay. A third river, the Rhymney flows through the east of the city entering directly into the Bristol Channel. A fourth river, the Lleucu has been culverted.
