Cardiff is a relatively small city but as capital of Wales it has plenty going on! There's museums, many entertainment venues, a huge shopping centre and hundreds of bars and restaurants. In this section we'll give you an outline of how the city works.
The Layout of Cardiff
We think that the easiest way to find your way around a city is to choose a centre point and then divide the city into smaller districts. For Cardiff our centre point is St John's Church. From here you can get to anywhere in the city centre within ten minutes.
We have divided Cardiff into four districts, and each district is divided into smaller chunks too. The areas are: the City Centre, compact with most of Cardiff's main attractions; Cardiff Bay, the city's leisure centre; the Inner City, popular for guest houses and home to Cardiff's students; and finally the Cardiff Suburbs, the outskirts of the city with good road access and ideal for business travellers.
We now include the Vale of Glamorgan in our Cardiff listings for those who fancy travelling out a little further.
