Historic Properties: Cardiff Bay (Waterfront)
Cardiff Bay, Cardiff. CF99 1NA • 0300 200 6565
This multi-million pound building overlooks the waterfront of Cardiff Bay. Home to the Welsh Assembly Government, the Senedd contains the Debating Chamber, Committee Rooms and a public cafe serving cold food.
The Senedd is the main public building of the National Assembly, the main centre for democracy and devolution in Wales. It is an open building – a building into which you can walk, have a cup of coffee in the Oriel on the upper level, and go into the public galleries from the Neuadd on the centre level.
It is also a sustainable building, built of traditional Welsh materials such as slate and Welsh oak and other sustainable materials. It is also sustainable in the way it is heated; for example, the earth exchange system uses heat from the bottom of the old dock, on which the Senedd stands, before it became the area which is now Cardiff Bay.
