Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay

The Pierhead helped Wales forge its identity 'through water and fire' in the late nineteenth century. Today its aim is to inform, involve and inspire a new generation to forge a Wales for the future.

A historic Grade One listed building under Wales's very own Big Ben, the Pierhead was once the focal point of commerce in Wales. This majestic building has stood proud over 113 years of Cardiff Bay's unique and varied history.

Visitors can enjoy a visual display that documents the shifting landscape in Cardiff Bay over the past century, through which the Pierhead has remained a constant feature. Explore the Pierhead for yourself, and discover how the building and those who worked there helped shaped Wales' past.
